Meet Cauca smallholder producers

Coffee farmers tend their trees, watch the weather, and in due season, pick and bring the work of their hands in the form of sweet ripe coffee cherries to local processing mills. Theirs is the origin from which the flavor of the Cauca region takes its journey to the cups of coffee lovers the world over.

This particular Colombian coffee goes the extra mile after the beans have been processed--they undergo a water-decaffeination process in which 99% of the caffeine is removed, while the flavors that make this a very special coffee remain. Water processed decafs eliminate the use of harsh chemicals in the extraction process so that what ends up in the cup is coffee, pure and simple. And tasty.

Cauca, Colombia

The Cauca region in the south-western part of the country faces the Pacific Ocean where daily temperatures range from close to 11 degrees centigrade (51 F) by night and 18 degrees centigrade (64 F) by day. These temperature variations alter the rhythm of ripening, giving the coffee the higher acidity levels, distinctive sweet notes, and particular caramelized fragrance for which the region is known.

Here the great Andes mountains split into Cordilleras (parallel mountain ranges): Cordillera Occidental, Cordillera Centro – Oriental, and 70% of Colombia’s safe water springs the high, cold mountains and brutally rugged terrain. One of these rivers, the Cauca, lends its name to the region.

The people here--descendents of Guambiana (Misak), Páez (Nasa), Yanacona, Coconucos and other first-nation peoples as well as Europeans, are resilient and hard working, and it is their efforts that have made Cauca the rich agricultural region that it is today.

Tinker Coffee Co.

When brothers-in-law Steve Hall and Jeff Johnson founded Tinker Coffee Co., they had a simple plan: bring the specialty coffee scene to their own Indianapolis, Indiana backyard. Combining backgrounds in wine and tech (Jeff worked with IBM for 10 years) with a dedication to sourcing fantastic coffees and sharing the excitement with customers, Steve and Jeff were recently named “Indy’s most innovative roaster" by Indianapolis Monthly, so their hard work is paying off!

Tinker Coffee was founded in 2014 and roasts coffee for a sweet group of restaurants, offices, and markets. Jeff admits to preferring Colombian coffees, and Steve, Kenyas.
