El Jordan, 250g
Beneath the shadows of the beautiful Nevado del Huila, lies the small town of Gaitania, home to fifty coffee growers responsible for El Jordan. The influence of this active volcano has given this region volcanic soils and microclimates to grow outstanding coffee. Its fertile lands and mild climate, combined with a strong dedication, produce a unique cup profile. Despite insecurity challenges, due to guerrilla presence in the region for over four decades, these coffee growers have always grown their coffee with pride and care.
Caravela, our logistic partner, started working with El Jordan in 2003 after seeing the excitement to produce high-quality coffee. Since then, they have implemented diverse training projects to work with them and help maximize the potential of coffees. As a consequence, some of its members have been Cup of Excellence finalists several times.
