In the nose, an intense and thick crema exhales notes of cocoa and frangipane. The attack is supple, the body extremely velvety. The spicy typicity of semi-wild mokas tightened by fine acidity offers intoxicating gourmandise.

What is a score?
Our product range is categorised by score: 80+, 85+, 88+ We have the "Specialty Coffee Association of America" to thank for the system of "scores", who defined a very strict ratings protocol to evaluate the quality of speciality coffee. This ratings system enables players within the sector, as well as coffee lovers, to share a common language. Within this tasting protocol, the main criteria for the evaluation of a coffee are noted: odour, aroma, after-taste, acidity, body, harmony, purity...
The final score classifies the coffee within a hierarchy unique to speciality coffee. The coffee must achieve a score of at least 80/100 to be considered a speciality coffee.
A detailed look at the scores attributed to speciality coffee:
- - Score 80+ = very good coffee
- - Score 85+ = exceptional coffee
- - Score 88+ = grand cru* (great vintage)
Our blends, being mixtures of multiple coffees, are excluded from the rating system, although they are all comprised of speciality coffees.
*The SCAA classifies 90+ coffees as "Outstanding". We consider an 88+ coffee to reflect a quality that is already outstanding, already representing the excellence of the sector. In this regard, it is a Grand Cru.
A pretty little 15-hectare farm in the heart of Pitalito, a beautiful terroir located in the region of Huila. The Jaime plantation was badly affected by Roya (coffee leaf rust disease) in 2013. Since then, he has replanted in Castillo and most interestingly in Geisha on El Vergel, his prize parcel. He increases the acreage of Geisha year by year to enhance volumes making him a leading specialist of the crop in Colombia.
A speciality coffee
Speciality coffee are the best batches of coffee from farms or local cooperatives. They are fully traceable (botanical variety, region, plot) and respect demanding processing methods. This guarantees exceptional quality in the cup.
