About the farm and this coffee:
The town of Acevedo is nestled in the heart of Southern Huila which is home to some of the best terroir for growing high quality coffee in the entire country of Colombia. These coffees were blended by Apex from smaller day lots grown on Finca La Florida by Gilberto Rojas. These smaller lots normally would have been sold locally for very low prices and mixed into large, non-traceable regional blends. By keeping them separate, Apex was able to ensure that Gilberto was paid fairly for his coffees and can highlight more of his hard work of growing coffee. Rogue Wave Coffee is happy to offer this lot as one of three coffee from Gilberto Rojas. The other two being the Finca La Florida Decaf, and the Finca La Florida Lot 2.
