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.
I thought more than twice about paying 38.00 for a lb of coffee but I received it today and ground some of the dark roast beans…WOW!!! I consider myself as a self proclaimed coinsurer of fine coffees from all over the world. I have had the best in Italy, Germany, France and even Turkey (not from, but in)…my search has ended…Blue Mountain has blown everything else away hands down!C. Dixon, San Antonio, TX
