Finca Las Flores, owned by Gerardo Peñalba was founded 15 years ago and started as a very small farm, working on around half a hectare of land. He managed to grew his coffee business through reinvestment of his profit, dedication, good agriculture practices and of course hard work. Flower Paradise is different from our other products because it’s “honey processed”, meaning the coffee is dried with cherry mucilage remaining on the parchment that encases the bean. Since the mucilage of the coffee cherry is sticky and slimy, it is sometimes called “honey” and this process is referred to as the “honey process”.
This selection’s variety is Catuai, grown around 1450 meters above sea level and it gets a light (city) roast level, meaning the coffee is dropped to start cooling shortly after it’s first crack. It’s a must have if you are looking for vegan coffee (ethically and ecologically sourced), that tastes amazing and supports grassroots organizations, that take the charity game on a completely new level.
