It’s an honour for us to share yet another special coffee from the Ortega-Gómez family. This single-origin coffee offers smooth notes of white melon, cherry floral, and caramel.

¹ Processing & Varietal

Washed Yellow Caturra

² Region of Origin

La Muralla, San Agustín, Huila, Colombia

Coffee production has come to be a dominant agricultural product in Colombia and Huila province is now the largest coffee-producing zone. In San Agustin alone, 6000 of these producers dot the picturesque mountains. Driving through winding dirt roads draped in cloud, one can spot the deep dark green of coffee trees growing up the steep inclines - Caturras, Colombias, Castillos; Typicas and Pink Bourbons.

70% of the world’s coffee is grown by smallholders who often can’t afford their basic costs of living due to low prices.

This is not that coffee.

Meet the Producer Who Made This Coffee

Esnaider Ortega-Gómez

Esnaider Ortega-Gómez is more than a coffee producer to P.S., he’s a dear friend with whom we have shared many hours in deep conversations around life, coffee, and philosophy.

Esnaider's father, Don Olgar, is a man of great respect in San Agustín and his grandfather is one of the earliest coffee-growing generations in the region. To say that coffee is in the blood of this family would be an understatement.

Esnaider Ortega-Gómez's newest initiative, Monkaaba, is aimed at educating small producers so that they can better advocate for themselves and connect to a broader specialty market.

Read Their Story



The P.S. Coffee menu is made possible by grower communities and smallholder farmers in Rwanda, Honduras, Colombia and Guatemala. Through our sourcing sister-company Semilla, we hold long-term and consensus based partnerships with producers that have had zero or limited access to or knowledge of the specialty market.

These skilled and passionate professionals are redefining coffee production within their growing regions that have historically been underserved and overlooked despite being within well-respected coffee producing countries. Through community support networks, access to knowledge and capital and investment into physical and intellectual infastracture, they are transitioning towards autonomy and away from the exploitative model they’ve mostly always known.

These are the people and communities you’ll meet through P.S. — and build connections with as we continue to support and purchase from them year after year.

Meet the P.S. Producer Network


All of the coffee on the P.S. menu is exclusively sourced with Semilla Coffee through the following principles:

Durable Relationships

All of Semilla’s relationships are formed with specific communities in underserved coffee growing regions within well-respected coffee production countries. Semilla identifies producer groups that have zero or limited access to or knowledge of the specialty market and takes on the requisite risk that comes with their transition into becoming specialty coffee producers with dedicated buyers across North America. Semilla’s commitment is to work only within the bounds of these groups, seeking to grow with them in pursuit of purchasing all of their production, year after year.

Best Prices, Defined by Producers

All coffees purchased by Semilla are purchased at the best locally available price. This is determined via communication with and understanding of local market dynamics, and prices are arrived upon via a consensus model in which the coffee growers and Semilla agree democratically on the best prices for all involved.

Traceability and Transparency 

Semilla’s commitment is to work with complete commitment to traceability and transparency along the value chain. This means full transparency of prices paid to the farmer (farmgate) as well as prices paid at port (FOB). Additionally, Semilla offers in depth information and context for each coffee, the producers who grew it, and the condition within which they work with each purchase. 


Semilla exclusively works in the specialty coffee realm, meaning all of the coffees purchase are above the quality levels offered  by conventional commodity or Fair Trade and Organic buyers. Quality is determined in reference to the Specialty Coffee Association and Coffee Quality Institute’s grading standards, with all coffees source for P.S. achieving a minimum of 85 points out of a possible 100. 


We are skeptic of most fair trade/organic/sustainability certifications. They often leave the financial burden on coffee producers who are, and let's be honest, not polluting anywhere near us folks in the Global North are.

Instead of focusing on these certifications, we work towards a value system that uplifts everyone along the coffee supply chain. Through Semilla, our sourcing sister-company, we can connect directly with our coffee producer network to bring to life their ideas that come from, and work for, them towards a more sustainable, equitable value chain.
