This special coffee known as Los Ocobos comes from the municipality of Ibague, which is the capital of Tolima. The Ocobos or Pink Pouis break into beautiful flowers in the months of January and February and May
and July, after their rainy seasons. Our coffee partners for this coffee started working in Ibague in 2018 – establishing a purchasing and warehouse facility, after learning coffee farmers were travelling from Ibague to southern areas of Tolima.
