Colombia (CL) – La Vega Organic by Emilse Rubio
Emilse’s farm, La Vega is in the south of Tolima, almost on the border with Huila, in San Simon. The principal or main harvest happens from Mar-Aug, and Emilse grows Colombia, Castillo and Caturra at 1900 masl.
Emilse comes from a family with four generations of experience in coffee growing, and she inhertited this La Vega from her parents in 1994. While she has a husband, Roberto, and two sons, Ramiro and Camila, it is her nephew Camilo who helps her on the farm.
We found this coffee to have lovely florals and fresh herbs with great complexity!
