The department of Tolima is famous for its steep mountains, abundant water and deep valleys that create the perfect recipe for agriculture. Between those high mountains, wind tends to blow year round up from the Rioblanco River and through the coffee fields filling the air with sweet fragrances.
Las Brisas is the Spanish word for Breeze, which sums up what’s like to be a coffee grower in the region. These growers have made great leaps to consistently produce high quality coffee, and continue to seek out ways to improve. They work really hard using techniques like: slow drying with breeze, manual defect removal, specialized tree care, long fermentation processes, picking mature cherries, better beneficios, and investing back into farm infrastructure.
