THEIR STORY

Finca El Ocaso is located just outside the historic town of Salento, in the Quindío department of Colombia. The estate, owned and operated by Gustavo Patino, rests on a lush Andes mountainside at 1900 meters above sea level. Gustavo and his wife Gloria are avid naturalists, taking pride in the biodiversity of El Ocaso. Gloria loves flowers and keeps the 19th century farmhouse and surrounding grounds awash in blooms. This benefits Gustavo, who is an avid birder and photographer, and can often be found pointing out toucans and humming birds to the travelers who stop by the farm on their way in and out of Salento.

THE FARM

This harvest cycle El Ocaso has expanded, bringing us several new coffees, including a fantastic Honey Process with notes of fig and apple butter paired with baked buttery sugar cookie notes. The results of our continuing partnership with Finca El Ocaso and Campesino Specialty Coffee are highlighted by bringing these unique coffee experiences, all from the same farm, to our customers. Tasting each of these coffees, all harvested from the same hills outside of Salento, Colombia, side by side, illustrates the diversity of aroma, flavor, acidity, and body that can be achieved by manipulating the post-harvest processing techniques.
