Transcend Coffee & Roastery

Maria Rojas - Green (unroasted) Coffee - Colombia


Pecan | Brown Sugar | Golden Raisin 

  • Farmer: Maria Teresa Rodriguez Rojas
  • Farm Name: Quebrada Honda
  • Region: Los Andes, Nariño, Colombia
  • Process: Fully washed, dried on raised and covered beds for 5 days
  • Variety: Castillo
  • Elevation: 2400 meters

This coffee is grown about as high as any we’ve ever bought. While Nariño is known for its elevations, seeing coffee grown at 2400 meters above sea level is rare. At heights like this, ripening happens so slowly that it can seem like the cherries will never fully develop. Fortunately this coffee grown by Maria Teresa Rodriguez Rojas showcases all of the complexity and intensity that comes from ripening in the cooler temperatures high up on the mountainside. Like many small Colombian farmers, she dries her freshly washed coffees on raised beds that are covered by plastic to keep the rain out. 

We sourced this coffee through Azahar, a Colombia based exporter that we’ve worked with since 2017. They are committed to providing coffee producers with stable, high prices for their coffee, as well as to helping them improve and manage quality over time. Their quality control procedures are state of the art and they’re the most transparent exporter we’ve ever worked with. We look forward to working with them for years to come!
