Passiflora is certified Organic
Planadas is the largest town south of Tolima, but is still isolated and lacking in infrastructure; a cause and result of the narcotics conflicts that have come to define this region. 35 farming families have banded together with developer/exporter/partner Cedro Alto to change that, to build on a culture of coffee growing curiosity, and to repurpose their incredibly rich ecological heritage.
Karl, who founded Cedro Alto with the aim of working with small coffee farmers who were growing very high-quality coffee but didn’t always have the ability to get that coffee to specialty roasters (and get a price that was congruent to the quality of the coffee they were producing), their coffee often ending up “blended in” to coffee from many other small and much larger producers, losing unique profiles along the way.
Roast Level: medium
We roast the Passiflora to a medium level so it is perfect for filter coffee drinkers who like a full-bodied coffee and for espresso drinkers who enjoy a sweet smooth drink. It works perfectly with milk.
