Colombia – Buena Vista

Our technique for this roast captures the indulging notes of brown sugar, milk chocolate and orange zest We are proud to offer this coffee as our friend in Colombia is creating new relationships with mountain farmers to elevate their community. Creating export channels for remote mountain farmers is no easy task, but when the coffee is this good it's worth every bit!

About the Farmer:

Yebirson Ucue loves coffee. When you speak with him you understand his drive to produce high quality coffee. "Coffee is in my blood, and because of it, I can provide for my family" Yebirson says. When he speaks about what he does best, he remembers his father and grandparents, who were also coffee farmers. 

Yebirson roasts, cups, and brews his coffee, which is in line with a new trend in youth coffee farmers who are quickly learning about specialty coffee. "At first, many of my friends discouraged me from producing specialty coffee, but know I feel like I cored a last minute goal!" He surprised himself with his quality and now he works with other youth to teach them about specialty coffee, helping them improve their quality so they don't leave their farms. 

This is the second year that RBR and our partners at Cosecha Traders imported Yeb's Microlot. We were so impressed that we bought his entire harvest and look forward to roasting this amazing crop for you. It's an honor to offer this dedicated producer's coffee!
