Colombia San Antonio Dona Rosa
This coffee is from the farm of Doña Maria Rosa, her farm El Nogal tucked away in the hillside above the store her family operates in the town of San Antonio.
Los Nogales is not reachable by car, a trail curling up around the side of the local school yard, then up, up, up for the better part of an hour to the reach the top at just shy of 2000 meters.
During the picking season, Doña Rosa makes this trek daily at 5 am to organize labor for the day’s picking, and to check on the processed coffee from the previous day’s harvesting.
Los Nogales is about 3 hectares in size, and they’ve planted 3 different cultivers: Caturra, Tabi, and Typica. Like many in the region, their benefits consists of a manual de-pulper, and they have a 3 tank system involving separate tanks for fermentation, soaking, and a final wash before being carried down to their home solar dryers in the town below. Their farm is situated along a ridged valley, carbonero trees towering from the valley floor, and banana and balsal trees used for shade.
