If you’re a coffee drinker, chances are you’ve had a Colombian coffee. Probably several Colombian coffees, in fact. The nutty flavor profile lends itself well to an everyday cup, making it a popular choice for most coffee heads. Our Frontera De Planadas is everything we love about Colombian coffee - baking spice warmth and caramel sweetness with a light, tangy acidity. This is a coffee for the long haul, a Colombian coffee with complexity and character to boot.

Where it's from

Planadas is a young place. The town itself was established in 1966. Now, just over half a century later, Planadas is a bustling commercial center with a healthy market for farmers from neighboring farm towns to sell and distribute their crops. One of the most prolific crops in the area is coffee, grown easily thanks to young trees, warms days, and the ideal elevation of the Central mountain range’s foothills. Our partners at Collaborative Coffee Source took a trip to the district of Tolima, Colombia. While there, they sought out quality lots from farmers in the Planadas area and put together a blend that was made with Methodical in mind - an approachable coffee that will stay with us for a long while.

I'll start off by saying I'm usually not a fan of columbian, but the awesome folks here replied to an inquiry (lightening fast) I had about what they recommend I try next and this is what was suggested. Oh man am I glad I tried this! One of the smoothest, best tasting coffees around. There is a particular brand of well known coffee that so many diners/restaurants use that I get excited they have because I love it and you can't just go to the store to get it.. well, this reminds me so much of that, but better! Like if that coffee had a much more grown up, mature sibling, this would be it. You're killin' it, dudes. I've already canceled a sub box (not coffee related) to be able to purchase this more often. Great coffee makes a difference. First I do the coffee, then I do the things. Thanks for fueling the "things".

Delicious Colombian

This was a very good coffee! The described notes come through very nicely (specifically caught the cinnamon the most clearly and truly enjoyed it). Would purchase again.
