If you've ever had the chance to enjoy our Colombia L'aroma, you've tasted something much deeper than a simple coffee. L'aroma is not just any coffee; it is a symbol of hope, a means of promoting peace and a way to improve lives. Here we would like to share with you the story behind this special coffee, directly from our partner The Coffee Quest who supplies us with these green beans.

From the Fazenda to your Cup of Coffee

L'aroma is composed of coffee beans sourced from small farmers in the Nariño region, specifically from Buesaco and Tablon de Gomez. The past in this area was not always rosy, but coffee production has provided stability and security.

One of the proud farmers contributing to this group slot is Ideon Muñoz. His finca, El Limón, is living proof of how coffee is not just a product but also changes a life. “My coffee plants have given me the opportunity to provide for my family and send my daughter to college in the city,” Ideon says with a genuine smile.

A Process of Care and Devotion

Growing these coffee beans is a precise process. The altitude ranges from 1,700 to 2,100 meters above sea level and the varieties used in the L'aroma Nariño Honey are mainly Caturra, Colombia and Castillo. The honey processing process, which gives the beans their unique taste, is a careful balance of fermentation and drying.

Our partner, The Coffee Quest, is meticulous in creating these group slots. The team in Colombia ensures that only beans that score 85+ (on the SCA scale) are selected. There is a strict check to ensure consistency, and only after final approval is the coffee ready for shipment.

A Commitment to Honesty and Transparency

L'aroma is more than a tasty coffee; it is a representation of hardworking farmers who do not necessarily strive to achieve micro-lot quality, but still provide a clean and very pleasant cup of coffee. The path of the coffee farmer in Colombia is still complex, and fair prices are unfortunately still not the norm. This is why our partner focuses on rewarding their efforts and transparency in price communication.

With around 2,500 small producers in the Tablón de Gomez region alone, farmers enjoy the mineral-rich soils thanks to the volcanic chain of the Coconucos. These 12 volcanoes located in a row offer exceptional conditions for the growth of coffee beans. You often hear this about delicious coffees!


L'aroma is not just any coffee. It is a story of hope, effort, and love for the profession. With every sip of Colombia L'aroma, you taste the passion and dedication of the people like Ideon, who put their heart and soul into these beans. Try it yourself and be part of this extraordinary story. Cheers! 🍵
