What is the meaning behind the name? Doña Ester coffee was named after Angela's mother. They say behind every good man is a strong woman and no better example of this was Don Jose’s wife, Doña Ester, who would often help Don Jose on their coffee farm. An Image of Dona Ester herself can be seen on the label. What are the traditional brew methods? Colombian Coffee is traditionally prepared using a colador (cloth filter) or by boiling the coffee grounds with Panela (Raw Sugar Cane) over heat, Tinto is the name given to a small black coffee. Due to the complexity of our Colombian Supremo Arabica, many customers prefer to keep things simple brewing their coffee and drinking it black or with a splash of milk/milk substitutes.
