This coffee was grown and processed by eight smallholder producers that are situated around the village of China Alta, a small community located in the municipality of Ibagué, in the state of Tolima, Colombia. The farms that contributed to this lot are very small – on average just 3 hectares in size – and are located between 1800-2000m above sea level, in the steep and rugged hills that surround Ibagué. 


The region of China Alta is named for the Rio La China, a small and beautiful river that swerves through the mountains and eventually feeds into Rio Magdelena, Colombia’s principal river. The farms sit alongside the river and the water is used to irrigate and process the coffee. The producers here grow the Caturra, Colombia and Castillo varieties. The coffees in this lot were selectively hand harvested, with most labour being provided by the farmers and their families. They were processed using the washed method at each farm’s ‘micro-beneficio’ or mill.
