A brilliant example of Colombian coffee at its best, this is an incredibly crisp and juicy cup layered with notes of baked pear, brown sugar, and vanilla cream.
Nestled in the mountains of southern Tolima, near Colombia’s highest volcano, lie the small communities of Planadas and Gaitania. This beautiful place is home to the dedicated group of coffee farmers responsible for Colombia El Jordan.
El Jordan is Stumptown’s longest standing direct-trade relationship in Colombia, and one they are particularly proud to represent, year after year. The Jordan group was formed through an initial collaboration between Stumptown, their import-export partner Caravela, and the producers themselves. Many of the original members of this group are from a sub-municipality called El Jordan, which is where this coffee gets its name.
Tasting Notes: A balanced cup with notes of baked pear, brown sugar, and vanilla cream.
Since their beginnings, Stumptown has searched the world for the best coffee out there. That coffee grows in mountainous regions of the tropics — farms perched at high elevations with warm days, cool nights, and distinct rainy and dry seasons. Microclimates, soil composition, coffee cultivars, and post-harvest processing methods can each contribute distinct dimensions to the cup.
The Stumptown coffee team spends about half the year in producing countries, meeting directly with their producer partners on their farms, at their mills, and in their cupping labs.
The effort is worth it. Stumptown is not doing it the easy way by buying bulk, mid-quality beans anonymously from a trading house. Instead, they go right to the source of the best coffee — that farm atop a hill in Ethiopia, for example. They hike through fields, stand among coffee drying decks, and sit down to share a meal and talk about the crop with producers they’ve met many times.
Stumptown routinely pay producers well in excess of what they could receive on the commodity market, but they understand that their coffee demands more work — hand-picking each cherry at ideal ripeness and processing it with great attention to detail.
