I produced the coffee you have in your hands!
Finca Santa Rosita
Marco is growing his coffee in Santa Rosita Farm, located just outside of San Roque, a small town in the central Andes of Colombia. Most of 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.
Santa Rosita has amazing spring water and waterfalls.
Marco has 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
