COLOMBIA • GILBERTO ROJAS
I first worked with Gilberto Rojas in 2017 and I am ecstatic to have him in the Quietly line-up. He has been operating his La Florida farm for over 40 years and continues to refine his growing and processing methods. In 2015, he scored second place in the Cup of Excellence Competition and has only improved his agricultural approaches since. La Florida sits an area of Acevedo that is surprisingly rainy and cool, which seems perfect for his exclusively red and yellow colombia crops. As any amazing producer demonstrates, Rojas' approach means you can taste all the hallmark elements of Acevedo in the cup.
Also, try his Decaf!
Gilberto Rojas’ always impresses with its refined and well-articulated flavour profiles. There is a perfect red grape acidity, that is juicy with just the right amount of bite. It gives way to a bounty of heavy chocolate and fudge that emerges in a creamy black cherry finish. If you have ever enjoyed Cherry Garcia Ice Cream, now is your chance to enjoy it coffee-form!
