Settled in the Andes Mountains, Tolima is the third-largest coffee region in Colombia. It's also one of our favourites, providing consistently high-quality coffee.
Oasis was produced by Luz Mila, a mother of 4 who originally purchased a coffee farm from her savings in 2012. At the time the commercial price was very low, however, it didn't stop Luz saving, and extraordinarily she went on to buy another farm in 2017, where she now focuses on growing only speciality coffee.
Luz carefully selected this coffee at its most prime maturity, before dry fermenting the cherries for 30 hours. Finally, they're pulped and fermented again with the mucilage of the exterior fruit for a further 25 hours. It highlights many of the typical characteristics of washed Colombian coffee with a very juicy body and a crisp acidity in the final cup.
Espresso: 1:2coffee to water, extracted in 28-32 secs
Filter: 60-65g coffee per litre of water, brewed for 3-4 mins
Roast & despatch days are currently Monday to Friday. All orders placed after midnight on Thursday will be roasted and dispatched on Monday.
We create a new and unique profile for each coffee we roast. Although the profiles are different, our approach is always the same, to highlight and accentuate the flavours created at the farm and mill. This means we don't label our coffees as espresso, filter, dark or light roast. All of our coffees are omni-roast, meant to be delicious however you brew. We believe the heart of speciality is keeping the identity and character of every coffee intact and alive, no matter the brew method.
