Colombia Jorge Rojas

Colombia Jorge Rojas

Peach Apple Caramel
Jorge Rojas’ coffee returns to Elm for the 2024 season. Both lots we purchased from Jorge last year were absolutely stellar, and we are very excited to bring it back this year. Some changes are here, this is a blend of 4 different varietals, specifically pink, red, yellow bourbon, and tabi. This results in a cup profile that splits the difference between the single varietal lots of Caturra and pink bourbon we bought last year: deeply sweet caramel apple, coupled with brighter stonefruit and floral flavors, all with exceptionally clean body.

Jorge Rojas is part of a new generation of “switched-on” Colombian coffee producers, devouring every bit of information they can get on organic farming, processing, roasting, and brewing. With such a depth of knowledge, he can expertly manipulate every step of coffee growing and processing, and as a trained cupper, roast and evaluate his crops to shift his practices on the fly to match his desired cup profile.

Tolima, Colombia

Jorge farms in La Armenia, Tolima- outside of Planadas. This region was the birthplace of one of
the biggest rebel groups in Colombia – FARC (born in Marquetalia, one of their villages), and as
a result of its isolation with a lack of road access, many producers in this region began to
develop their own models of territorial development. The region has exceptional agro-climatic
conditions, with coffees from 1,300 to 2,180 masl, hosting a range of different varieties, varietals
and farm processes.
