We are coffee exporters based in Medellin, Colombia. It’s our mission to personally find some of the best and most interesting coffees in this Latin American country. We value the personal relationship with the producers. We work with small and medium size independent coffee producers or small groups of producers. All our coffees are sustainably produced and the farmers receive a more than fair price for their work. We have built up durable relations with some excellent farms and always are on the lookout for exceptional micro lots that we offer as specials.

We speak fluent English, Spanish, Dutch, German and a little French. We have our own warehouse with spot coffees in the Netherlands, but mostly work with the unique concept of supplying the American market with freshly harvested green coffee by air cargo straight from Medellin to Miami. From there we use terrestrial transport all over the US. So if you want an exclusive single origin lot of Colombian coffee in quantities of 5-50 sacks we can supply this for a reasonable price. Of course we can also deliver larger amounts by container to anywhere in the world.

We always supply our coffees with extensive background information and imagery.

Portrait Nestor Heliconia

FINCA HELICONIA, BOLIVAR, ANTIOQUIA

Majordomo Hector is responsible for the daily management of finca Heliconia of the Restrepo family. This spectacular plantation just outside Ciudad Bolivar in the southwest of Antioquia was created fifteen years ago when several small fincas were joined. The old fincas are now identified as different lots. This season we have two special lots on offer: La Guadalupe and La Esmeralda. Both are extremely fruity coffees, but with a punch: a great acidity and a strong body.
