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 have had my first cup of Jamaican coffee in Negril back in 1981. With the internet age, I order your coffee on line right to my door for several years now. I just wanted to say that an out of town friend came to my house for a visit and she turned down a cup of coffee because she said coffee was too hard on her stomach. I told her about Blue Mountain coffee being the "best in the world" and she had a cup. Then she had 3 more after that, saying it didn't bother her at all. Another convert to the "best coffee in the world". Life is too short to drink bad coffee. Yours is the best!!!!
