Colombia, Planadas is a collective of several farms situated near the village of Planadas, near the tolima growing region. Its geographic attributes are its high elevations, warm days and cool nights with surrounding healthy trees contribute to its growth. However, Coffee from Tolima has been difficult to access due to its isolation. For many years the region has been under the control of Colombia’s notorious rebel group, the FARC, and as a result it has been unsafe and violent. Since 2012, safe access to this region has been possible as a result of peace talks between the Colombian government and the rebels. Since this time some stunning coffees from small producers have been discovered, mainly via cooperatives.
Ethiopia, Shaakisso Tima is produced by the Tima Farmer Group. The farmers cultivate coffee at the high altitudes of 2000 to 2150 MASL. Ideal climates cultivates a dense, sweet cherry here.
Farming methods in Guji remain largely traditional. Guji farmers typically intercrop their coffee plants with other food crops. This method is common among smallholders because it maximizes land use and provides food for their families. In addition to remaining traditionally intercropped, most farm work is done manually and very few tasks are mechanized, even during processing. Most producers in Ethiopia are smallholders, and the majority continue to cultivate coffee using traditional methods. As a result, most coffee is grown with no chemical fertilizer or pesticide use. Coffee is almost entirely cultivated, harvested and dried using manual systems.
The region receives ample rainfall and is marked by steep mountainous terrain. Perfect conditions to support the vast array of coffee here. Only recently have Guji coffees been distinguished due to their immense quality and unique profiles.
