About the coffee
This coffee comes from the same farm, Finca Morelia, but is based on a different variety: the Colombia variety.
The espresso is 'white-honey-processed'. This means that the cherries are pulped and washed as in the 'red- and yellow-processed' method. The washing is more intense in this process, so that even less mucilago sticks to the beans at the end before they are placed in the sun to dry.
Thus, the beans show little or no discoloration and remain white even after drying. Thanks to this special process, a wonderful flavor combination of white chocolate, red grape and soft almond is created.
About the farm
Farmer Miller Walles Cruz decided 15 years ago to grow coffee instead of sugar cane. To him, it is very important to preserve the natural biodiversity and to leave his land as untouched as possible. In the cold periods between harvests, he and his family prepare the farm for the next season. In addition to his family, he also relies on itinerant pickers who then harvest the ripest cherries, paying them about 1,000 pesos more per arroba (12.5 kilograms of cherry) than the going rate (COP 5,000-6,000).
