Planados Tolima is one of the most isolated coffee
producing regions of Colombia located in the Central
Colombia Andes mountains of Tolima nestling between
the vast Parques Nacionales Natural Nevado and the
Parque Nacional Natural Cordillera De Los Pichachos
Andes Mountain ranges. With very limited access, other
than through the town of Coyaima, mainly dirt road with
conditions permitting, it is a 12-hour road trip from Ibague
the province capital.
The area falls in the middle of the conflict zone for many
years controlled by the FARC; a forgotten region left to the
discretion of the people to basically fend for themselves,
having to comply with the rules or law's set by the FARC,
restricted to selling their crops to either the FNC or local
trilladora’s and receiving at best only commercial prices
At these altitude’s of 1600/2000 is where the real
high-quality Specialties are found; the terra enriched in
volcanic soils, numerous fresh mountains streams.
Profiles: The coffees are rich in flavour, notes of
red/yellow fruits, herbs, citric and lemon, deep in tense
chocolate and panela, full bodied, and wonderfully
balanced, excellent acidity, with an amazing after taste.
Regional cupping average 85-88 - Coffees are all grown
the artisanal way, fully washed and fermented up to 36
hours, sun dried, only selecting the finest of the beans
when ripe all are hand-selected
The Planadas area represents 48 coffee producing hamlets
representing 6821 small farms ranging from .5 to 6
hectares, renown for producing some of Colombia’s finest
Specialty Micro-lot coffees, are now gaining a reputation
for their higher quality commercial community coffees.

The easiest way to work out shipping costs is to go through the website ordering process as if you were going to order the items you would like, then on the final page of the checkout process (before having to pay) you'll be given a list of available shipping options.
Why are we asking you for a telephone number?
It is for the delivery company to contact you in case of any difficulties they have with your delivery, if you do not provide us with a telephone number and there are any issues with the delivery of your order the delivery company will not be able to contact you. If you are having your order shipped via DHL and you provide us with your mobile number they will send you updates via text message but we can set this to an email if not appropriate.
Once you receive your shipping confirmation email your order is on its way to you. At this stage we've roasted, bagged, picked, packed and dispatched your order then put it in the hands of your chosen courier.
It always makes us very happy when things run like clockwork but on occasion due to circumstances outside of our control your order may take a little longer to get to you than expected, please remember this is usually down to the courier. Royal Mail will not class an item as lost or missing for 15 working days but we always ask that you wait for 7, unfortunately we can not take action until this time has passed. During this time we recommend that you ask your local sorting office if they've already tried to deliver (even if they haven't left a card) and ask your neighbours if your order has been left with them. You should also check that the delivery address you gave us is correct, this can be found on your shipping confirmation email.
If your delivery still hasn't arrived after 7 days and you have performed the above steps then please email us at email@example.com with your order number attched. We realise this can be a very frustrating situation we do greatly appreciate your patience while your order makes its way to you.
