  • Farmlevel Story

    Farmlevel

    Due to higher solar radiation (read: warmth) seen between the tropics of cancer and capricorn, and warmer air's ability retain moisture more effectively than cold air - Tropical climates can be characterized by distinct "wet" and "dry" seasons (in exchange for “winters” and “summers”, respectively) based on their orientation north or south of the equator.

    Such dependable conditions are ideal for the cultivation of coffee which blossoms following heavy rainfall and - 6 months later - ripe cherries are conveniently ready to be picked during the following dry season.

    Where this gets tricky is in countries like Colombia, situated barely north of the equator where coffee can harvest in the first semester (like northern hemisphere countries) or in the second semester (like southern hemisphere countries) or... Both.

    This selection of first semester coffees come from the Rioblanco municipality in Colombia’s lush Tolima department where coffee is harvested from steep, Andean slopes as high as 2,000 MASL.
