Pablo del Cid - Finca El Jardin Washed
Want cafe pick up? Pre-order here!
We're excited to welcome back the coffees from Pablo and Eva at Finca El Jardin, a coffee partnership that started three years ago when they wandered into the roastery looking for a roasting partner. This is the first release of the 2022 crop is a crushable, crowd pleaser that lends a balanced acidity to a soft sweetness.
Pablo is a third generation coffee farmer who has recently started managing farm operations and has his focus set on improving cup quality year after year. By establishing direct trade relationships, he is able to manage the price and margins of his coffees instead of having it dictated by a global commodity market which is notoriously unfair to the producers.
Controlling the price allows him to reinvest in the farm, which we've already seen him benefit from planting new varietals, improve the washing station, and pay his farm hands a premium.
We've been serving this coffee as our house filter coffee and it's absolutely fantastic.
