Los Ocobos

Close to 20 small-scale coffee growers from the outskirts of Ibague

Within the central mountain range of the Colombian Andes lies Ibague, the capital city of the department of Tolima. This city has a long-standing tradition of music and is the seventh most populated city in Colombia. On a clear and sunny day, you can see the snow-capped peaks of the Nevado del Tolima against the horizon. Twice a year, the city of Ibague dresses up in pink, during the months of January and February and between May and July, after the rainy seasons. If you walk out into the streets and parks of Ibague during these times, you can admire hundreds of Ocobos, or Pink Pouis blooming and decorating the city.

The economy of this city is primarily based in the industrial and agricultural sectors. Out in the highlands that surround the city of Ibague you can find around twenty coffee growers that, with love and passion, produce coffee for the “Los Ocobos” blend. The region’s proximity to the Nevado del Tolima, offers these coffee farms a diversity of microclimates adding to the complexity in cup’s profile.

“Coffee from Los Ocobos has a very pronounced acidity with fresh and aromatic notes of peppermint, lemongrass, and anise.”
