The Farm

The La Roca farm is owned by the Umana family and is planted with Catuai and Caturra varietals. Its relatively high elevation (1800 masl) provides an ideal climate in which to grow these coffee plants and develop their unique characteristics to their full potential. The farm is a true family operation with the three children all assisting with the management and the coffee production process. Just recently a new micro wet mill was constructed at the farm allowing the family to depulp and ferment their cherries on site.

Costa Rica, Terrazu

The majority of the world’s coffee supply originates in Latin America, and although Costa Rica accounts for just a small part in total we know that we can go looking here for increasingly impressive specialty coffees. The Santa Teresa Cooperative is located within the Tarrazu sub-province, around 70 kilometers south of the capital city of San Jose, in a pristine valley surrounded by mountains that are part of the Talamanca Sierra. The nearby town of San Marcos is located at 1350 meters above sea level and surrounded by peaks as high as 3000 meters.

Process
Red Honey

With the red honey process a certain amount of mucilage and pulp are allowed to remain on the coffee bean during depulping. The cover will stay with the bean during fermentation and drying thereby contributing to the sugars absorbed by the bean and affecting the flavour notes of the final cup. The amount of mucilage remaining defines the type of honey process - white, yellow, red or black in ascending order of mucilage concentration. If they are processed properly, the coffees can take on quite a lot of sweetness and flavours while remaining clean.

Raised drying beds (sometimes referred to as African drying beds) are often preferable when working with honey processed coffees, because of the additional airflow they allow. The air ensures that the beans dry evenly and reduces the incidence of fungi and bacteria formation. On the other hand, some farmers are accustomed to using sun-exposed patio drying that require a regular raking of beans to avoid moulds. While total fermentation and drying time depend on such choices as well as ambient temperature and moisture levels, red honey processing easily needs two weeks from depulping until drying has completed.
