From Foundry Coffee Roasters:

We're loving our new comfort offering! This is clean, delicious, everyday coffee. Satisfyingly solid, well-balanced coffee that is really easy to brew whether you are using an espresso machine or any other brew method. It's already becoming our dependable, go-to brew, especially in a flat white.

Antioquia situated in the northwest is the largest department in Colombia with an estimated 95,000 coffee growers. Most of these are smallholders with 2- 5 ha of land but there are also larger family farms in the department that have been part of families for generations. Only recently has speciality coffee been associated with this department as there have been significant quality improvements over the past number of years.

The climate and dramatic valleys make this a very challenging environment in which to produce speciality coffee. Finca La Ricuarte is a 150 ha farm with 50 ha given to the natural forest and environment. This farm belongs to the Velez family who have owned the farm for generations. The main variety on the farm is Caturra with some Colombia and Castillo as well on the land.

The farm is also certified RFA as it is important to the family to be responsible for the environment as well as for the people they employ.
