I produced the coffee you have in your hands!
Finca La Juliana
Luis Eduardo known in his community as Don Cheo, is growing his coffee in La Sierra Medellin at 1,800 meters above sea level. All his coffee is shade grown. The trees filter carbon dioxide, which causes global warming and also the trees aid in the soils moisture retention. It provides greater biodiversity for the bird habitat in the region.
Don Cheo has a very strict cherry selection criteria on his farm, once the cherries are picked he uses the washed process method. After screening, only the ripe cherries are allowed into the de-pulping machine. After fermentation, the coffee is washed and sun dried on patios and drying beds until 11% of humidity, then a coffee sample is taken to the Lab.
Parchment coffee is packaged and stored in the farm until lab results are available and price is agreed
