La Gioconda

This coffee is proof that happy accidents exist. Carolina was trying to experiment with processing, and left a barrel with cherries fermenting over the weekend, but one of the workers from the farm mistook it for coffee that was left unwashed, and proceeded to depulp and wash it, but some of the mucilage was left in the coffee. When Carolina found out, she felt curious as to what could be the outcome, since it was neither a washed, nor a honey. It resulted in one of the most aromatic and balanced coffees Carolina has, and she named it La Gioconda, since she sees the mystery involving the Mona Lisa androgynous looks, with this coffee and its middle ground between washed and honey! With notes of green apple and ripe mango, combined with its aromatic basil and orange zest, this coffee combines the best of both worlds.

San Antonio

Carolina Ramirez is one of our UVI stars. A lawyer, an endurance runner, AND an incredible specialty coffee farmer, she truly is an inspiring woman. The embodiment of the excitement we believe seeing young people working in coffee farms represents. Having studied law in Medellin, she decided to go back to Andes to live with her parents at their farm when the pandemic hit and fell in love with the specialty coffee world and its production chain. Nowadays, all of her coffees are designs made alongside her mother, and they both are in charge of selection and processing.
