La Joyería is one of the coffees we’ve come to know well over the years. Beans from this farm have become one of our staples at this time of year and we always look forward to discovering how the coffee will taste from season to season. The farm sits at a high altitude so we always expect some fruit in the cup.

This year it has juicy plum flavours, a stone fruit character and a caramel sweetness.

La Joyería

Our seasonal coffees each come with their own story, which is part of what makes them so special. Here we take a look at the farm, processing and social responsibilities of La Joyería in Colombia.

The Farm

The Facts

Altitude: 1,400 to 2,000m

Harvesting & Processing

Social and Environmental Responsibility

Santa Bárbara Estate employs 60 people all year round, who on average earn 30% above the minimum wage. Half of these also receive free housing within the farm for themselves and their families. A further 1,200 pickers are hired during the main harvest, comprised mainly of farmers from around the Santa Bárbara Estate who pick coffee to supplement their income. Workers are generally long-term employees and have been with the company for more than 10 years.

The Santa Bárbara Estate also runs an extensive scholarship and financial aid program for worker’s children as well as helping long-standing employees to acquire their own piece of land upon retirement.
