The coffee is grown in this estate which is located 8 km. from vereda Palmor, in the SW slope of Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta. The total area planted is 112 hectares, producing approximately 2,500 bags, at an altitude between 1,300 and 1,750 meters above sea level. A total of 46 hectares are maintained as natural reserves, offering rich canopies, a perfect habitat for endemic and migratory birds. The coffee comes from Typica, Caturra and Castillo varieties. All coffee from Agroberlin Farm is shade grown under Guamo, Pacaya, Carbonero trees and other native shade trees (rustic Polyculture). It is naturally fertilized with carefully prepared compost originating from coffee pulp and manure. This special coffee is fermented for a period of 14-18 hours, washed and dried at the farm's wet mill and patios. It is meticulously milled and graded to standards at the farm owned dry mill in Santa Marta. Its cup offers a rich flavor, full body, sweet citrus, caramel notes and a smooth aftertaste.
Amazing coffee - Thank you for changing my life
I recently returned from a vacation in Montego Bay, Jamaica. Prior to going I watched a show on the Travel Channel about Jamaica. When I saw that Jamaica produces coffee beans I was excited to try this coffee. I was at my resort having breakfast only a few hundred yards from the ocean as I sipped my first of the Blue Mountain coffee. That cup was the best cup of coffee I've ever had, and I am an avid coffee drinker.
I purchased a few pounds of your coffee before leaving Jamaica and now when I drink the coffee it reminds me of my first breakfast in Jamaica. I will forever be a customer of Blue Mountain, and will be sharing with family and friends. Thanks mon!Patrick Wilson, Minneapolis, MN
