Rodrigo Alberto Pelaez is a fourth-generation coffee farmer at Laderas Del Tapias (LDT). LDT was a major pioneer in the region for specialty coffee in the 1980’s, when the main farmhouse and processing facility were built and restored. The Colombian coffee crisis in the late 90’s left the crop abandoned, to be taken up again in the early 2000’s by the newest generation. To this day, it stands as a pillar in the community and grower of spectacular coffee.

The story of Laderas Del Tapias is that of a classic underdog. In 1989, the International Coffee Agreement was dissolved, and the price of coffee on the commodity market plummeted. To think that this farm shuttered in the 90’s, reopened in 2000, and its coffee made its way all the way to the bag you’re holding right now... it’s impossible not to treat these beans with a profound respect of the craft. All the hard work, the passion, and the bravery it had to have taken to make these beans exist is just awesome. Did we mention they’re delicious? - Boomtown

All Boomtown Coffee® is 100% natural, free of artificial flavors or additives.  All of our tasting notes are a result of a standard SCA cupping.  Flavors found in home-brewed coffee are subject to individual taste and brew method.
