Tolima is one of the 32 departments of Colombia located in the Andean region. It is a booming department with delightful landscapes. The department of Tolima is famous for its steep mountains, abundant water and deep valleys that create the perfect recipe for agriculture. Between those high mountains, wind tends to blow year round up from the Rioblanco River and through the coffee fields filling the air with sweet fragrances. Producers from Tolima aspire to take everyday as an opportunity to improve, or grab the bull by the horns. lt's 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 far over tour decades, these coffee growers have always grown their coffee with pride and care. These growers have made great leaps to consistently produce high quality coffee meaning fewer defects from origin, specialised tree care, picking only mature cherries, better processing techniques, and investing back into farm infrastructure.
This coffee was one of the first varieties that Mr. Ratibor Hartmann decided to plant in this perfect area quite suitable for coffee growing. Therefore, the farm is run by the Hartmann family. Their farms are located in the scenic region of Santa Clara and the border with the International Friendship Park close to the Talamanca Mountain Range.
Each variety is produced under shade and sustainably cultivated without the use of pesticides. All cleaning is done by hand and any cherries that do not meet Hartmann’s quality standards are used as organic fertilizers on the crop. Hartmann employs the native people of the NOBES tribes to help him produce this exceptional coffee.
