Welcome to the Odd Bean collection. This project started from the idea of wanting to find a home for all the beans in our roastery that are waiting for someone to enjoy them. At the end of every week, we end up with small batches of leftover coffee beans that are carefully packed and willing to wake you up in the morning.

This is one of our ways to pursue a no-waste lifestyle and to give a longer life to the so-called odd beans. <3

Mario Fernando Gomez is a 2nd generation farmer who in recent years has taken the lead of this family coffee tradition dating back to the 1960s.

 In the lush rolling hills at the footbed of the Cordillera Oriental mountains, one is captivated by Mario’s dedication to quality.
At Finca La Floresta Mario together with his father, who produced coffee from 1960, decided to plant other varieties five years ago. This lot is the first direct export of Striped bourbon with the new plantations of it.
Through meticulous attention to detail and a commitment to excellence, he and his team coax unique flavors of the several local and exotic varieties available in his family farm through agricultural best practices and environmental stewardship, including composting to enrich soil fertility, and water conservation techniques. There is a priority for shade-grown coffee, which promotes biodiversity and
protects against soil erosion.

Additionally, Mario Fernando participates in community development initiatives with local farmers, such as education and healthcare programs for workers and their families. Through these efforts, not only does he produce exceptional coffee but also contributes to the long-term health and prosperity of his farm and the local community of Acevedo.

We are delighted to be able to offer this delicious coffee from Finca La Floresta.
