    Farm Info:

    This beautiful farm is perched on a hillside just outside the small town of Socorro, Santander on what used to be a commercial orange farm. These days, the orange trees line the edge of several lots of 100% Castillo varietal coffee trees growing in front of the family's home. Maria and Alfonso have been farming for almost 20 years and believe strongly in producing quality coffee and proper land stewardship. They have moved from a traditional washed processing method to a modified washed method utilizing a machine called a ‘desmusilaginador’. This ecological processing method uses a machine to de-pulp and wash the fruit off of the bean in a much more efficient way. The traditional method requires the seeds to be soaked and washed after de-pulping which uses 40 litres of water for every 1 kg of roasted beans to wash. The desmusilaginador cuts water consumption down to 4 litres of water for every 1 kg of green beans. This tenfold decrease in water dramatically reduces strain on local water supplies and decreases the amount of water to be filtered before being returned to the water table.
