Colombia - Toro Family Fincas- El Vergel
This is the truest Toro Oro.
These beans come from a place that can only be described as Eden. This coffee is from Génova, Colombia where three of our family farms are located. Our Finca, El Vergel, is a magical place located in the region that isn't as developed as the rest of Colombia. I literally slept in a tent next to these plants when they were being planted in 2013.
Toro Coffee Co. offers our generations of love and passion with our own farm to cup harvest. This specialty coffee, harvested from newer coffee plants has endured through unexpected mudslides and elements to get to us. It makes these fresh greens even more special. We feel so blessed to have our own beans in stock from such a gorgeous harvest.
Showcasing passion and love from generations of our family's history this cup of coffee is sure to blow your mind. This specific coffee is what called my soul to get into the family business and bring it here to the states in a way that had never been done before.
To get to Génova by car you have to go on some of the most treacherous rides through the narrow and unpaved roads up the highest elevated mountains of Colombia. This special harvest comes right in time for delicious cold brews, and every specialty coffee drink of every variety. It's time to fuel that summer of Abundance! Cheers, my loves. It is an honor to roast for you all, especially these beans- my bloodline, my culture...Toro Oro.
