A fruity, well balanced coffee, notes of apple, grape with citrus and caramel.

Varietal: Colombia

Processing: Washed and silo dried for 24 hrs.

This coffee comes from one of our favourite producers the Echavarria family and is part of the Santa Barbara Estate, which is comprised of five sister farms - this includes, Finca Veracruz and San Pascual, coffees that our regular customers will know well.

These lots are grown at high altitude in the Andes, at an average of 1700 meters in fabulous volcanic soil. Each lot is the combination of two days picking, the coffee picked on the second day is added to the first after 24 hours fermentation and then left to ferment in the tanks for a further 24 hours. In this method of fermentation, the second batch raises the ph level of the fermentation tank, permitting longer fermentation times without the acetic acid produced by bacteria at a lower ph level.

Santa Bárbara Estate employs 60 people all year round, who on average earn 30% above the minimum wage. Half of these also receive free housing within the farm for themselves and their families. A further 1,200 pickers are hired during the main harvest, comprised mainly of farmers from around the Santa Bárbara Estate who pick coffee to supplement their income. Workers are generally long-term employees and have been with the company for more than 10 years.

The Santa Bárbara Estate also runs an extensive scholarship and financial aid program for worker’s children as well as helping long-standing employees to acquire their own piece of land upon retirement.
