At La Palmera, coffees are mainly processed using the natural method.
About 75% of production is processed in this way.
It is very environmentally friendly, due to low water consumption and at the same time the farm differs more among other growers,
who traditionally process coffee in the wet way for Colombia.
The hand-picking of our coffee took place during August 2020.
The total amount of coffee collected is 360 kg.
The coffee cherries were dried in the sun for 18 days.
The coffee produced has a very interesting taste profile - juicy acidity is combined with a very pleasant full body and high sweetness.
