The La Roca farm originates from the Gaitania highlands within the Tolima region. The owner of the farm is Jorge Elias Rojas, who, in addition to growing excellent coffees, also plays a decisive role in the life of the local community and the coffee industry. Following his decision a few years ago, he grows only the highest quality specialty coffees, using appropriate agricultural practices. He participates in community programs, educates, helps other farms, and educates the next generations.

The Tabi variant is a relatively new shrub, it was crossed around 2002 from the most widespread varieties in Colombia (Bourbon, Typica, Timor) in order to create a variant that is more resistant to diseases while retaining their good properties. The word "Tabi" means "good" in the language of the local aborigines. We can't argue with that either :-)

Colombia accounts for approx. of the world's coffee production. gives 10%. (coffee is grown in 22 of its 32 counties). Among the SHG (Strictly High Grown) coffees produced in higher regions (between 1200 and 1800 meters), we selected those that really fit the capsules of our "Treat" line.

The coffee history of the Tolima region is full of battles, and work could start again when the guerrilla warfare ended. At the same time, since no agricultural production took place in the area for decades, the plants, the soil, the waters are untouched, they were not contaminated by any artificial fertilizers or insecticides, so organic production was easily possible. Although the impact of La Nina is felt the most in Colombia (heavy rains are especially bad for coffee cultivation, flowering does not or hardly starts and not when it should), the Tolima region is the least affected and offers the highest yield.

Before you start making coffee, make sure that your machine is clean! (there are no capsules in it, you washed out the water, etc.). This is very important, since these coffees have a very clean taste, even the slightest contamination (scale, coffee oil, grounds, etc.) can be disturbing!

Insert the capsule and use the short button to prepare a drink of 25-30 ml (approx. 20-25 grams). We set Tabi La Roca specifically as a short-flow presso, in our opinion, this is how it can show its real face!
