If there’s a coffee heaven, Huila, Colombia and Seattle, Washington are probably both in the running. This coffee pairs the two for a delicious collaboration that wins universal praise from our expert panel. These Caturra beans were grown by a group of 92 smallholder farmers who cultivate their coffee in rich volcanic soil along the steep hills of the Colombian Andes. But quality alone might not be enough to qualify as heaven, so let’s talk good deeds. Caffe Ladro sourced this coffee through an ethical approach that guarantees transparency. That means when premium prices are paid, most of the money ends up in the farmers’ pockets. So you’re helping them invest in quality of coffee and quality of life. Coffee heaven indeed.
