El Paraiso comes from various small growers located in the region of Tarqui, Huila, Colombia. The average farm size is only 3 hectares. This is a great example of smallholders working together as a team to produce high quality coffee. Farmers use traditional methods to wash and dry their coffee on their own farms. Tarqui is well-known for its high quality coffee and distinctive topography.
“El Paraíso” is the name of the association working to produce coffee in this region, which translates to “Paradise.” Tarqui’s animals, flowers and biodiversity leads to the area often being referred to in this way by the local community.
This is one truly special coffee and exclusive to Marvell St, we hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
