In our roastery

Our Roastery Team has had the opportunity to become friends with Shady Bayter from Fresno, Tolima in Colombia. Shady, along with his brother Elias and their mother Martha, operate Forest Coffee – a thriving export brand featuring a selection of coffees from their own estate, Finca El Vergel, as well as surrounding farms. 

We’ve already collaborated on two greens from Forest in the past, the excellent Gesha Marcela and the Java El Eden. Their team is bringing some truly impressive coffees to the North American market. We're excited to connect you to this farm by offering three greens that will ship directly to you from Forest Coffee in Colombia.

These three greens are available in 35 kilogram bags. It typically takes 2-4 weeks to arrive to locations in the US via Fedex.

In your lineup

El Vergel is a washed lot of the Caturra varietal. A well-rounded foundation coffee that has notes of brown sugar, red fruit, and pecan. It finishes clean, is mild in body, and is versatile in use as a single-origin offering or incorporated into blends.

This is an ideal offering for a light to medium profiled coffee that tells a story about its origin and producers.

Martha and her two sons, Elias & Shady started to work with experimental coffee in a way that they could create and pass through the technology that would help to improve the quality of life of the families that work together with them in their project El Vergel.

Forest Coffee’s flagship, Vergel took over a decade to perfect the process where a mix between the traditional processing and a modern touch with their special fermentation practices are used to develop flavors in the cup.
