You’re at the right spot, right about to reserve your Cottage. Loved by the entire team, the Cottage has been a staple in our product line since our beginning. With the help of Semilla, we were able to create a profile that represents exactly what we expect of a perfectly designed day-to-day specialty coffee offer. This unique blend of yellow columbia and pink bourbon varietals is complex, sweet, clean with a sparkling and balanced acidity.

Every aspect of this coffee represents what we believe in: it is transparently sourced and imported by Semilla and the Monkaaba coffee project, which regroups some of the best Colombia coffee producers, it is fairly paid for the quality and it tastes amazing.

Monkaaba is a collectivist project founded by seven smallholder families, and led on a daily basis by Esnaider Ortega Gomez and Didier Ortega. Originally, this project was based out of the Ortega-Gomez home in the vereda of Sevilla, outside San Agustin. Based on the principles of open access and community support, every weekend during harvest time, their home was opened to any smallholder who wanted free sample roasting and cupping with the aim of providing unbiased and clear feedback and recommendations around quality. From Semilla's first purchase in 2020 of six producers, the Monkaaba project has blossomed into a tight-knit network of 60 families, all of whom are driven by an interest to know more about their coffee, how it might be improved, and how they can form resilient, stable relationships.
