For those who love Colombian coffee, we're excited to bring you this year-round collection from the exceptional coffee growing region of Huila, Colombia.

The Monserrate Grower's Association formed in the early 2000’s, when a group of coca farmers began replanting their fields with coffee in an effort to stop the violence that surrounds coca. This resulted in the incredible coffee cooperative we've worked with since 2011.

The collective shares information among community members to help produce better quality coffee, and sells those coffees in individual and group lots. The Monserrate association does not have a centralized mill structure, so each producer operates their own micro-mill and this makes each coffee that comes from the association unique.

Our current selection is from Nora Nelly Pillimue. She and her family pick and wash their coffee themselves. This lot contains both Colombia and Tabi varieties. Those coffee varieties combined with excellent terroir and careful processing give this coffee its unique complexity. This exceptional lot won the 10th annual and most recent micro-lot competition “Lo Mejor de Monserrate”. Look for notes of Blueberry, Orange Blossom, & Walnut.
