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.

Just wanted to send you guys a note to say thank you for including a sample of Edgar's coffee blend on my last order. The aroma is amazing and finishes just like a great cup of blue mountain coffee should. I will be including it in my next order.
I am currently in Afghanistan and I must say making a pot of blue mountain coffee makes our lives here sooo much better- a great cup of coffee helps distract us from the more serious business of the day.
Thank you again, we really appreciate your support. Hope all is well stateside.US Army Special Operations Joint Task Force, Kabul, Afghanistan
