The coffee from El Rubí was sourced through our partners Osito, whom help us source most of our coffee from Colombia. It is not often we purchase community lots from Colombia, however when we tasted this coffee and learned more about its background we just could not resist! 

El Rubí is an informal collection of farmers based in three veredas in Planadas, Tolima, grown at really high altitudes and exceptionally processed. The group has grown by word of mouth through 3 or 4 producers with whom Osito worked for 2-3 years each.

Given the challenges of working with only a handful of producers who are far away from the base of operations, Osito decided it was best to intentionally grow the purchasing in the area to make logistics easier. However, the quality of the coffee produced speaks for itself.

A common thread with many of the producers in this area is that many are certified organic. Most of the producers are also members of a local association called ASOPEP. Osito leans on ASOPEP heavily to collect parchment and facilitate direct payments on our behalf since our offices are around 7 hours away. For that service, ASOPEP is paid a small commission.

Regardless, the relationships are very direct with each and every producer in El Rubí.
