Jorge Rojas is a young coffee producer who is turning heads in the Tolima region of Colombia from his farm, El Jardin. He represents the best of the newer generation of up-and-coming coffee growers. His hunger to learn, experiment, and build off of those that came before him is already resulting in significant attention, as represented in his 3rd place recognition in Colombia’s 2022 Cup of Excellence auction. Rojas has over 20 years of experience beneath him but still jumps at any opportunity to expand that knowledge, whether it be through experimenting with processing methods or organic farming practices. Another reason for Jorge’s impressive success is his experience in roasting and cupping. Coffee growers rarely have access to roasting equipment and many of them aren’t able to taste their own coffee. For Jorge, this is an integral factor in his success and it allows for him to make processing adjustments to hit targeted results in cup profiles.
It is an absolute honor to offer one of his honey processed Gesha lots within our lineup, thanks to our good friends over at Shared Source. Shared Source is doing phenomenal work throughout Colombia and is a trusted advocate for the growers they represent. This is evident in both their words and actions and it’s why we source 100% of our Colombian coffees through them. What excites us most about coffees like this one is its ability to showcase the wild flavor possibilities that coffee can offer and normalize paying higher prices for coffee, as producers like Jorge pour their heart and soul into producing truly remarkable coffees like El Jardin’s honey processed Gesha.
