The Farmers

The wet mill La Palma y El Tucan has made its mark by working closely with small coffee growers such as the farm La Abuela owned and operated by Olga Beltran. The farm is located at 1.750 masl and is one of tens of smallholders working in close collaboration with the wet mill in exchange for various monetary benefits for higher quality cherries, and non-monetary benefits including support with agronomic techniques and quality control. La Palma y El Tucan purchases ripe cherries from all its neighboring partners, which are subsequently processed using innovative fermentation techniques that aim to create stunning flavors in the final cup profile. The result is a groundbreaking project that finds farmers with significant potential, helps them improve their crop, and finally uses state-of-the-art fermentation techniques to produce surprising flavor profiles.

Cundinamarca, Colombia

One of several coffee growing regions in Colombia, Cundinamarca produces coffees that benefit from a location in the eastern range of the Colombian Andes. Characteristics such as mild weather, plenty of rainfall and relatively good infrastructure all benefit the coffee farmers here. However, numerous challenges from increasing land prices, urbanization, and the high average age of farmers mean that those who continue to grow coffee must reconsider how their revenue stream is composed. For many this means moving from commercial to specialty grade production, which reaps a considerably higher market price.

Process
Honey Fermentation

This is somewhat different from ordinary honey processes as the cherries are left to pre-ferment for some hours before the skin is subsequently removed. After this first stage the bean is dried in the remaining mucilage attached to the parchment for a minimum of 15 days. The most important variables to control during this process are the temperature and humidity levels within the raised beds and the evenness of the drying process. The final cup profile is reminiscent of sweetened exotic fruits.
