Colombia's La Rivera by Cocora

A microlot coffee of peach, flowers, and yellow fruits syrup with a delicate and silky body. The family that owns Finca La Rivera is descended from grandparents who were dedicated to coffee growing as well as other crops that are typical of the region and that coexist among coffee plantations such as corn, beans, bananas and citrus among others. These lands are cultivated at an average height of 1,750masl and are refreshed by the cold winds coming from the snowy peaks of the Ruíz and Tolima.

La Finca La Rivera have moved from intensive agriculture to one of lower productivity but outstanding attributes and qualities. They have been treasuring traditions and implementing new techniques in cultivation and fermentation over the years to bring to the cup, a drink that expresses all the complexity and beauty of Colombian Coffee Culture.

We're working with Cocora, an exciting and innovative speciality coffee roaster in Malaga, Spain who roast the beans to perfection. All of Cocora's beans are:

 

  • Seasonal
  • 100% traceable
  • Superior quality according to high SCA standards

 

Cocora’s roasting approach opens up the full potential of the bean by

accentuating the unique taste profile for each coffee. So grind up some beans and brew. Give it a smell. Let it cool down and enjoy a cup of Colombian goodness!

 

The Goodery coffee is absolutely incredible. The beans have obviously had a lot of love and care put into the roasting, the picking and the delivery. Josh really cares about his coffee, and his customers and wants to ensure that they are seeing the bigger picture behind what they are drinking. The fact that the coffee is sustainable, zero-emissions, packaged beautifully and easily one of the tastiest around as well as being carefully curated each month, makes it all the better. Not only does it smell great, taste delicious, it looks damn cool on your kitchen work-top.

The difference of speciality and organic

For many coffee is just a daily dose of caffeine, but we see it as an opportunity to become truly present, to connect with something special and to support an art form that provides economic and environmental resilience for farming communities around the world.

High quality organic coffee grown to speciality standards is something truly unique. We’ve been amazed at the diversity and complexity of flavour when it’s grown, roasted and brewed with care.

There’s something profound that happens when you get the right bean, at the right grind size, with the right temperature water and the right dose. It’s like magic.

I've enjoyed making a ritual out of it and my son loves the whole process. I can’t wait to share this joy with more people and invite others into this dance of soil, people and bean.
