ImporterNordic Approach

There is no doubt that Colombia has become one of our favourite producing countries. We love the diversity on offer, range of processing styles and recent focus on scientific and experimental processing methods. Most of the amazing coffees we buy from Colombia come from very small farms covering less than 15 hectares and are typically bright, juicy washed coffees. This time we've got something a bit different for you. A wild, funky and juicy natural!

This coffee comes from a farm owned by Ana Cecilia Uribe and managed by her oldest son Danilo Perez. At Finca La Cumbre (where this lot was cultivated), located in the nearby municipality of El Pital, Danilo works side by side with a local producer named Rafita Gómez (who is also the farm manager) with the objective of producing high-quality, naturally-processed specialty coffee. This dry manner of processing coffee is what the Pérez Uribe family have come to be known for, on a departmental, as well as national, level.

Farm Overview:

The farm covers 11 hectares at an altitude of 1800 masl and is planted with Caturra trees. The family have been farming coffee for 6 years and before that we focused on the milling and selling of already processed parchment coffee. The family owns 4 farms in total focusing on natural processing of coffee.

Harvesting and Processing:

During the harvest the family employ a team of around 70 local pickers who are all trained to harvest only ripe cherry and for this careful harvesting they are paid a premium. Once harvested the coffee is handsorted carefully to remove any defects and dried on covered patios. The patio drying under cover means that the coffee is fully protected from bad weather. The drying stage takes around 10 days after which the coffee is stored in grainpro bags in a cold store room.

Tasting Notes: 

Juicy fruit notes including red grape, cherry, pineapple and a lovely sweetness.If you like juicy, fruity coffees then this is the one for you!


This coffee works well for all brew methods. 

Filter: Dose 15g, water 250g. 

Espresso: Dose 17 gram to 40 gram yield over about 30 seconds. 

This coffee is available as whole bean and pre-ground but we recommend always grinding fresh before brewing. We sell a range of grinders if you would like to grind this coffee fresh at home.

    The Perfect Grinder

    After reading lots of articles and watching many demo video reviews, I finally went ahead and purchased the Barazza Vario grinder, I am blown away with it's features and grind quality, it is also quite heavy and feels built to last for years to come, I did some price comparisons and found Horsham Coffee Roasters came out tops in value, plus I live only 15 mins drive away so I was keen to shop local.

    Delivery was super quick even over the Crimbo holiday period, it arrived very well packaged with 2 empty coffee bean hessian sacks.

    Another plus was a few pounds off for subscribing to their newsletter, and I had some bonus store credit which I chose to spend on a kilo bag of Nova espresso blend....Great result and I highly recommend this grinder and shopping with Horsham Coffee Roasters.

    One of the best hand grinders

    Great build quality, easy to use and very consistent grinds. Recommended.

    Everything I wanted

    Bought these as they seemed more reasonably priced than other ‘proper’ coffee scales and they certainly have not disappointed. I wanted one with bluetooth functionality, although haven’t needed to use it so far. I love that the timer starts when the extraction starts. Why haven’t I been using coffee scales for longer? Every extraction tastes good and is uniform, I’m no longer making the odd rubbish cup or wasting any beans. Easy to use and everything I need!
