NEW: You can now purchase our Solitude Espresso in 1kg bags (please note quantity price break only applies to 250g purchases).
We use a single component in our Solitude Espresso which is currently, Jhon Faiber Castillo, a coffee from Colombia.
We purchased the whole harvest from this farm, and have agreed a better price than the farmer would have received if he had remained in the local cooperative.
Expect a mellow acidity in the cup with flavours of chocolate and almond.
This unique coffee is produced by Jhon Faiber Castillo, a community leader for specialty coffee in the municipality of Inzá, Cauca. Produced at 1,800 meters above sea level, this very special lot was selected out from the rest of the organization’s producers as being of exceptional quality.
Jhon Faiber has been surrounded by coffee his whole life. A second-generation coffee farmer, Jhon inherited his farm, Casa Loma, from his parents at a young age, becoming a role model for younger growers across the region. Today, Jhon manages his family farm along with his wife, whilst his young children still attend primary school. Till this day, Jhon continues to be a leader in the community around San Jose, encouraging other producers to engage in specialty coffee programs in the region.
