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.
