El Rubí is the union of a small group of producers in the rural area of the Planadas, in the region of Tolima, Colombia.

Together and with the support of Osito (our export partner in the area) they achieve better conditions for cultivation and processing of their coffee lots.

This translates into cup quality improvement and the economic remuneration for their work.

This is a success-example of the increasing trend towards the consumption of specialty coffee, which allows more and more producers to take steps to a more dignified life.

For this washed lot, the harvested ripe cherries are floated and classified, pulped and washed with water and left to dry on raised beds until 11% moisture is achieved in the bean.

Colombian Coffee Project El Rubí: A Commitment to Quality in Planadas, Tolima

El Rubí is more than a specialty coffee; it’s the name of a group of small producers in Planadas, a rural locality in Tolima, Colombia. This mountainous region, situated between 1800 and 2000 meters above sea level, offers an ideal climate for the cultivation of Colombian specialty coffee.

The producers of El Rubí belong to three veredas in Planadas, small agricultural communities where this exceptional coffee is cultivated. Osito, our exporting partner, works with these coffee growers to standardize cultivation and processing, thereby improving their earnings.

Planadas, a rural municipality in Tolima, is located south of Bogotá and east of Cali. Despite its historical importance to Colombia, it has received little development, and many of its inhabitants live off subsistence economy. Originally inhabited by political prisoners and smugglers, today many of its residents are dedicated to coffee cultivation.

El Rubí: A Project of Transformation

Osito Coffee started a project in Planadas with 2 or 3 producers, attracted by the ideal conditions for specialty coffee and the excellent coffee already cultivated locally. Working with these small producers, Osito has helped establish standards and methods of cultivation and processing to achieve the quality of specialty coffee.

The concept of specialty coffee goes beyond a simple score in cupping; it involves valuing the entire production chain and the effort of each one to obtain the best coffee. This directly improves the quality of life of the coffee growers, who often live in precarious conditions.

Processing and Drying of El Rubí Coffee

El Rubí coffee is processed using a washing method, preferred by many for its ability to highlight ‘clean’ tasting notes. The cherries are picked at their optimal point, sorted by flotation to discard the immature or defective ones, depulped and washed to stop fermentation, and finally dried on raised beds until reaching 11% humidity.

This commitment to quality and community is what makes Colombian Coffee El Rubí an exceptional choice for coffee lovers.

This is the cold brew coffee recipe that we propose for you to make 600ml of cold brew. The ratio, in case you want to brew more or less than this quantity, is 1:15, 1gr of coffee for every 15gr/ml of water.

Recipe and equipment:

  • Coffee 40gr. (Use whichever coffee you prefer. We suggest coffees that you like in filter. The ones that are tagged with “Cold Brew” are our favourites).
  • Grind size: Comandante 16 clicks.
  • Water 600gr/ml at room temperature.
  • Water composition: 2 parts of Lanjarón for 1 part of Bezoya.
  • Mesh or silk.
  • Glass container (preferably with a lid).
  • Let it rest for 22 hours (in the fridge).

The way to make cold brew:

  • Grind the coffee with a medium grind. Comandante 16 clicks.
  • Pour the coffee directly into the mesh.
  • Introduce the mesh in the glass container.
  • Pour the water into the container through the mesh with the coffee.
  • Swirl to wet all the coffee.
  • Cover the container.
  • Let it rest for 22 hours in the fridge (beware of strong odors!).
  • When complete remove the mesh with the coffee and it will be ready.
  • Bonus: you can filter it again through a V60, Kalita or similar paper filter to obtain a clean and more crystalline result.
  • Keep it refrigerated.
  • This recipe is not to dilute. Not even with ice. If you add ice, the composition of the ice water will affect the taste of your drink. Better to make your own ice with the same composition of water proposed. If you use ice, you may want to lower the ratio (1:9 to 1:12).
