About

This offering from the Santa Barbara Estate is an exceptional example of a classic Colombian coffee; effortlessly balanced with with moderate acidity and full flavor. The unique sweetness from this particular estate shines through. Where other Colombian beans boast toasty and nutty components, bright notes of cherry and honey crisp apple develop fully throughout this cup. High quality beans are cupped daily by the estate workers to deliver a consistent and clean cup that we can’t get enough of.

The Santa Barbara Estate was established nearly three decades ago by Don Pedro Echavarria. With ideal climate and elevation, the coffees coming out of this estate are truly something to behold. It’s one of the few estates in all of Colombia with completely integrated coffee farms. This allows for full traceability and careful quality control from harvest to export. The estate offers educational programs and incentives for its workers so they can focus on quality, attention to detail and highly technological processing providing a great basis for top of the line coffee production.

Timeline

Harvest and export times are based off when a particular coffee will be at its peak quality. Cherries picked at the start of the harvest season tend to be underdeveloped, and those picked at the end are often overdeveloped, so producers aim for that sweet spot in the middle.

Harvest

Mar - June, Sept - Jan

Export
