WHY DID WE SELECT THIS COFFEE?
Along with Herbert Peñazola, Ana founded La Real Expedición Botánica (La REB) to help farmers across Colombia improve coffee growing practices and processing techniques. As coffee quality increases, so does the price paid for the coffee, and La REB works to connect farmers with buyers around the world.

HOW DID WE ROAST THIS COFFEE?
This coffee is being roasted by Ian T. from 19th June to 13th July in Brooklyn. We use the Loring Kestrel roaster for this profile. We have strict guidelines for each of the coffee profiles, and this roast has to pass the development time ratio test as measured in real-time by the roasting software, Cropster. Once it does, it is approved for production.
We perform Quality Control via a process of coffee tasting called cupping on all of our production roasts once a week from home as per our Covid-19 shelter in place guidelines. Each cupping is conducted by our roasting staff Kieran D. and Ian T. using standard equipment, and is logged by our Q-certified cupper Ian T. All coffees are evaluated on a scoring scale of 0 to 3.
- 3.0 = exceptional roast - exceeds expectations
- 2.5 = on par with profile - matches expectations
- 2.0 = good roast, but 1 or 2 elements could be improved - needs improvement
- 1.5 or lower = failed - do not ship
