Quick Overview

We've had a number of excellent coffee's from the Santa Barbara Estate, which is composed of 5 sister farms that lie across three neighbouring, geographical regions - Santa Barbara, Fredonia and Amagá.

Each Veracruz lot is comprised of five days’ picking. Each day, pulped beans are added to a fermentation tank with a built-in refrigeration unit that circulates water at temperature at about 18 °C, significantly below normal fermentation temperatures of 25/26 °C. By mixing the five days picking and reducing temperature, the producer is able to maintain the correct ph level and avoid very low ph levels during processing that can lead to over-fermentation.

This is a really silky coffee. There is a smooth buttery mouthfeel with a gentle acidity and good body. There are notes of sweet cherry, stone fruits and caramel.

Product Description

We've had a number of excellent coffee's from the Santa Barbara Estate, which is composed of 5 sister farms that lie across three neighbouring, geographical regions - Santa Barbara, Fredonia and Amagá. The Estate was established in the 1980s by Sr. Pedro Echavarria who chose his farm high in the Andes of Antioquia for its diverse microclimates, singular volcanic soils, perfect altitude and a tradition of excellence in coffee production. The Veracruz lots come from one of the Estate’s smaller farms, composed of 16 hectares of coffee and a small mill.

Each Veracruz lot is comprised of five days’ picking. Each day, pulped beans are added to a fermentation tank with a built-in refrigeration unit that circulates water at temperature at about 18 °C, significantly below normal fermentation temperatures of 25/26 °C. By mixing the five days picking and reducing temperature, the producer is able to maintain the correct ph level and avoid very low ph levels during processing that can lead to over-fermentation. In addition to giving more control over ph levels, the lower temperature also gives more control over yeast and bacteria activity.

Santa Bárbara Estate is extremely socially responsible, employing 60 people all year round, who on average earn 30% above the minimum wage. Half of these also receive free housing within the farm for themselves and their families. A further 1,200 pickers are hired during the main harvest, comprised mainly of farmers from around the Santa Bárbara Estate who pick coffee to supplement their income. Workers are generally long-term employees and have been with the company for more than 10 years. The Santa Bárbara Estate also runs an extensive scholarship and financial aid program for worker’s children as well as helping long-standing employees to acquire their own piece of land upon retirement.

This is a really silky coffee. There is a smooth buttery mouthfeel with a gentle acidity and good body. There are notes of sweet cherry, stone fruits and caramel.
