producers: VELEZ FAMILY

Antioquia situated in the northwest of Colombia's coffee lands is the largest department in Colombia with an estimated 95,000 coffee growers. Most of these are small holders with 2- 5 ha of land but there are also larger family farms in the department that have been part of families for generations.

Finca La Ricuarte is a 150 ha farm with 50ha given to the natural forest and environment. This farm belongs to the Velez family who have owned the farm for generations. They main variety on the farm is caturra with some colombia and castiloo as well on the land. The farm is also certified RFA as it is important to the family to be responsible for the care environment as well as for the people they employ.

The coffee once harvested is then separated and pulped and then fermented overnight in water for 12=16 hours. After this the coffee is then washed and floated before then being dried on patios or in a mechanical drier at 40 degrees if the weather is too wet.
