We Picked Because: Nico personally visited Elias Roa's farm, Finca Tamana, in 2016 and met the family. Elias has one of the most rigorous bean selection processes we've witnessed with a religious devotion to cup quality and flavor.
Elias Roa is curious, charismatic, earnest, and passionate: a truly remarkable individual. He has been growing coffee since he was a small child. Continually experimenting with coffee processing to improve quality, Elias is bringing his beans directly to roasters in Europe and the US.
