Colombia, Santa Maria, Natural Process

Mildred Muñoz has dedicated Santa María, a 75-acre family farm, to be run entirely by women. The group of 22 women control everything from leadership decisions through quality control. The project is new, but the women have support from Mildred and her husband Oscar Daza who have another farm nearby called La Pradera. The alliance gives the women at Santa Maria access to award winning processing protocols developed at La Pradera. The cherries for this particular lot were meticulously selected and fermented in an anaerobic and aerobic environment before being placed on raised beds for drying.

Brewing Method Recommendation: Espresso and manual filter brew are our favorites methods for this unique coffee but has done well every which way we've brewed it. For filter brew manual or automatic drip machine, we think it tastes great at a solid 16:1 water to coffee ratio and stretched to 17:1 highlights the soft berries.
