Not only did both our companies excel in this review, but since women-produced coffee is rare in the coffee business, we are thrilled to support those producers who are exceeding in the face of varied pressures

Bird Rock Coffee Roasters, a specialty coffee roaster in San Diego, California, announced today that they received a 94 point score on their Colombia La Palma Y El Tucan, a lactic processed Gesha, which also received the 2nd spot in a review this month for the best women-produced coffees in CoffeeReview.com.

Like the majority of coffees sold at Bird Rock Coffee Roasters (BRCR), the Gesha was sourced directly at origin from the La Palma Y El Tucan farm by co-owner of BRCR and PT's Coffee Roasting Co. (PT's Coffee), Jeff Taylor, on a trip to Colombia last year.

In the same review, PT's Coffee received 95 points on their El Salvador Finca Kilimanjaro, a cascara-fermentation processed coffee by Aida Batlle, which secured the top spot in the U.S. review of women-produced coffees in CoffeeReview.com.

“There is so much to celebrate in these outstanding reviews,” said Jeff Taylor, co-owner of Bird Rock Coffee Roasters and PT's Coffee Roasting Co. “Not only did both our companies excel in this review, but since women-produced coffee is rare in the coffee business, we are thrilled to support those producers who are exceeding in the face of varied pressures, including the multiple roles these women play as heads of their family and their businesses.”

Finca La Palma y El Tucán is located the Cundinamarca region in Colombia, on the eastern range of the Colombian Andes Mountains. It features distinct micro-climates that allow for great biodiversity and unique ecosystems, with ideal conditions for specialty coffee growing.

CoffeeReview.com stated, “An almost shockingly original Gesha cup, intense, surprising and intricate in its layered aromatics, brisk yet sweet in structure.”
