Colombia | El Jardin



Jorge Rojas, a fourth-generation coffee grower, manages Finca El Jardin in Planadas, Tolima, Colombia. Finca El Jardin sits at an altitude of 1860 m.a.s.l and spans 3 he solely dedicated to coffee cultivation. Within this area, a diverse range of coffee varieties can be found, including 4,000 Caturra, 7,000 Yellow Colombia, 1,000 Pink Bourbon, 800 Wush Wush, and 1,000 Geisha.

Jorge employs his unique fermentation and drying process. Only perfectly ripe cherries are handpicked during harvest. After 72 hours in sealed tanks, the cherries are depulped and undergo a second fermentation for 38 hours. The coffee is then washed and subjected to precise drying. Initially, it is mechanically dried at 30°C for 28 hours, followed by 24 hours in a dark place at 20- 24°C. Next, it is dried for 48 hours in a greenhouse at 30-34°C. After resting for 24 hours, the coffee undergoes a final mechanical drying at 38°C for 48 hours. Finally, it is cooled, stabilized, and packed.

Introduced to coffee farming at just 13 years old, Jorge gained invaluable knowledge under his mother’s guidance. Inheriting a portion of his father’s farm and acquiring land from a neighbouring farmer, Jorge established his own Finca El Jardin.

Family involvement is integral to Jorge’s coffee production. Together, they work diligently in the fields, aiming to innovate and produce exceptional coffee. Additionally, Jorge has ventured into creating his own brand, La Roca, where he personally roasts coffee. Currently, he is constructing a wet mill to purchase and process coffee cherries from neighboring farmers, further enhancing his production.
