La Estrella del Ostro is a Colombian speciality coffee grown by various small-scale coffee growers from Belen. Belen is a small township located in the southern region of La Plata, Huila.

The beans are sustainably grown by 50-100 small coffee growers in Belén-La Plata and have scored 85.5% on the Speciality Coffee Association's quality score sheet, which is an exceptionally high score for a House Roast.

These small-scale producers share the same microclimates, favourable for cultivating high-quality coffee. “La Estrella del Ostro” gets its name from a star that shines notably bright most nights above the mountain range where this coffee is grown.

La Estrella del Ostro is a coffee as bright and sparkly as the star it is named after, we hope you enjoy this wonderful coffee.
