Origin Trip-Day One, Arriving in Colombia

After getting to Newark the night before and having dinner at Ruby Tuesday's in Elizabeth, New Jersey (the only walkable option from our hotel), Rik Kleinfeldt (New Harvest Coffee Roasters) and I met Jaime Schoenhut (Royal Coffee New York) at the Newark airport and off we went. After a full day of travel we met Oswaldo Acevado of the El Roble farm that produces Mesa de los Santos and Don Telmo Reserve, and Max Fulmer and Jennifer Huber, both of Royal Coffee-SF in Bogota, and flew with them to Bucaramunga, Colombia. After getting off the plane, we had an exciting ride to Mesa de los Santos and Finca El Roble. Miriam, who runs the house and cooks at El Roble, had a delicious soup ready for our dinner and it was off to bed to rest up for the day ahead.

Have fun at Mesa de los Santos! I was there about this time two years ago with Royal and it was a great experience, quite an impressive operation! Fermín and his family were also so very nice; I'm sure you'll have some amazing meals!
