Empatia Coffee is a brand new coffee company that provides both a subscription service and a single purchase option. It was founded in 2016 by Scott Nelson, who left his Wall Street career for new opportunities and moved to Columbia. Empatia Coffee was born from Scott’s desire to provide coffee drinkers with the very best coffee while at the same time using fair trade practices to improve the economic lives of coffee farmers.
You can enjoy this exceptional coffee at home knowing that Empatia Coffee uses a “Pour-Back” profit-sharing model, giving back 15% of their profits to the farmers who grow their coffee. Plus, they pay premiums for their bean in excess of Fair Trade prices. Their goal is to constantly introduce and ship new coffees from all over Latin America and share the farm stories with our customers.
Empatia Coffee’s Mission
The Finca La Cabana is a lovely coffee that is well-balanced and flavorful. I believe this is a medium-bodied roast and has a very mild acidity with no distinguishable bitterness. The mouth feel is smooth and creamy. I tasted bright, fruity notes especially at the finish, mostly of apple.
Overall, I feel the Finca La Cabana yields a clean, smooth cup of coffee that exceeds standards of your everyday-coffee drinker — all without being pretentious. The ground coffee worked well for both drip and french press. I highly recommend this coffee!
