Guatemala, La Colina

£9.50
Tony Medina inherited the aptly named La Colina (translated as "The Hill") from his father. The farm sits on the San Martin hillside 1,700 metres above sea level, where Tony initially planted corn and beans, but always dreamed of owning a coffee farm.

Tony planted the first coffee plants in 1991, and the rest is history! They grow only Caturra and Bourbon on the farm, but he is hoping to introduce more varietals in the future.

Shipping

Delivery on standard item is 2-3 days. Subscriptions and large items may require longer delivery times. We will contact you with a delivery estimate if your order can not be delivered within our standard timeframe.

Environmental Impact

All our packaging should be recycled in domestic curbside recycling or at your local recycling centre.

We are almost a waste free business & constantly track and measure our waste and impact on the environment.

Packaging

We have specifically sourced our packing so it can be recycled.

Our coffee bags are made from LDPE - 4, which can be taken anywhere that recycles plastic bags (supermarkets & council sites). Everything else we use can be put in domestic curbside recycling.

Delivery

We roast once a week in batches to reduce our carbon footprint. So your coffee might not arrive the next day.

Direct Trade

Whilst Fairtrade (TM) is a great, we believe directly buying from producers means all the money goes to straight to them.
