El Zafiro is grown by the large extended Veléz family in Jardin, Colombia. Each member is in charge of different aspects of their coffee business, all of which happens at their family farm. They have created drying patios on the roof of their home, meticulously raking the coffee all by hand. They also only grow one varietal of coffee- Castillo. Which was planted all over Colombia in an effort to combat coffee diseases. Through the slow sun drying of the coffee, it adds a round sweetness that will please those looking for a richer, darker coffee.

Tasting notes: this coffee is great for those who enjoy a richer, more bold cup. Lots of chocolate, and nice acidity, this coffee is great in a French press, or pourover.

Roast Days are Tuesday + Thursday. Orders received before 12a Thursday will be roasted and fulfilled that day. All orders received after Thursday will be fulfilled the following week.
