Grapefruit, Pomegranate, Lasting
After the passing of his father 10 years ago, his farm was divided between his children. Victor Berrera decided to make a growing shift for the finca and changed the varieties from Caturra and Typica to Tabi. He has planted 4,500 Tabi shrubs across his 3.5 hectares. El Tesoro is operated by Victor, his wife and roughly 8 to 15 pickers from the local community depending on the harvest size. Developed by Cenicafé in 2002, Tabi was introduced to the world as a cross between Timor, Typica and Bourbon. This unique combination of varieties boasted a plant resistant to leaf rust as well as superior flavor—fun fact: Tabi translates to “good” in the Guambiano, a native Colombian tribe dialect. With a crisp, grapefruit acidity and a dense, pomegranate sweetness, this lot will leave you wanting more.

El Tesoro Tabi
Got a dark roast blend that I’ve been very satisfied with but the single origins are really where Verve shines. Always very good and you never have to work too hard to bring out some really interesting flavors.
Wanted to love it
Verve coffee came highly recommended to me from a friend, and I was very excited to try it. The order came quickly and the packaging was awesome (sweet resealable bag). I wanted to love the coffee, but it smelled and tasted like dirty feet. Will definitely try another bean, but wow, this one was a bust.
We believe the coffee experience is our responsibility from seed to cup. Coffee is our craft, our ritual, our passion. It drives us and inspires us. With this simple truth and responsibility we are bridging the gap from farmlevel to streetlevel.
