Discover the Heart of Colombia: The Farms Behind Our "Colombian Specter" Roast
At Skeleton Brew, we believe that great coffee starts at the source. Our "Colombian Specter" medium roast is not just a testament to quality and flavor but a celebration of the land and the people that make it all possible. Nestled in the lush landscapes of Tolima, Colombia, the farms that cultivate our exceptional beans are the cornerstone of our commitment to excellence and sustainability.
The Region: Tolima, Colombia
Tolima is renowned for its rich volcanic soils, ideal climate, and elevations ranging from 1,500 to 2,100 meters, making it a paradise for coffee cultivation. The region's unique terroir imbues our coffee with its distinctive flavors, marrying the natural sweetness of mango and peach with the luxurious depth of dark chocolate.
Our Farmers: The Heartbeat of Cafe del Macizo
In 2003, a visionary group of 59 lifetime growers in the municipality of Planadas formed Cafe del Macizo. This collective is more than just a group of farmers; it's a family united by a shared passion for coffee and a commitment to excellence. Each member brings decades of knowledge and dedication to the table, working together to cultivate the finest varietals of Caturra, Castillo, and Typica.
Sustainable Practices: A Commitment to the Earth
Sustainability is not just a buzzword for us; it's a way of life. Our Colombian Specter is organically certified, reflecting our dedication to environmentally friendly farming practices. By implementing methods such as washed processing and sun drying, we not only preserve the quality of our coffee but also ensure the health and sustainability of the land for generations to come.
The Impact: Beyond the Bean
Choosing the Colombian Specter is more than just selecting a high-quality coffee; it's supporting a model of ethical sourcing and community empowerment. Through our partnership with Cafe del Macizo, we're able to provide better livelihoods for the farmers and their families, contributing to the economic stability and growth of the Planadas community.
