Introducing a cup of coffee whose sweet, chocolately notes are a reflection of its heritage. Las Acacias is more than just a coffee plantation; it is a piece of land located on the mountain slopes of southeastern Antioquia, in a Colombian town with a rich tradition of coffee growing known as Ciudad Bolívar.
Since 1994, this plantation has belonged to the VARGAS RESTREPO family, who—with the help of hardworking rural farmers—use time-tested methods handed down from their ancestors to grow the best Caturra(60%) and Castillo (40%) coffee beans. Together, they take pains to employ exemplary farming practices, to show respect for the environment, to know their employees’ worth, and above all else, to possess a deep knowledge of coffee beans.
These coffee crops, sown at altitudes between 1350 and 1850 meters above sea level, are caressed by warm winds off the Cauca River during the day and cool temperatures from the Choco jungle at night, leading to sweet, flavorful beans.
From this volcanic soil, nourished by the river and the jungle, Las Acacias coffee plantation presents the world with a little piece of Colombia’s best: a sweet cup of coffee infused with the life, the experiences of the VARGAS RESTREPO family, and the hundreds of farmers whose work only enriches its flavor. This coffee is certified by the RAINFOREST ALLIANCE.
