The coffee story

Tabi means "good" in a native Colombian tribe's language. Once you try this delicious coffee you will agree with us that "good" falls short. 
This varietal was introduced by CENICAFE, Colombia's Coffee Research Center in 2002, with the aim of combining the delicious cup qualities of Typica and Bourbon with disease resistance and productivity. 
Tabi is tall, its delicious coffee cherries come in red and yellow, and it feels totally at home at La Pradera, where our Tabi lots have been growing and producing exceptionally well. 
Controlled anaerobic fermentation and a slow natural process makes this an exceptional coffee to engage the senses in the fruitiness and vibrancy of our tropical flavors. 

The process

The perfectly ripe cherries are harvested by hand by our expert team. Cherries then enter a classifier that further selects the cherries by size, and from there they pass into an optical classifier that further selects cherries by the perfect ripeness color. The selected cherries by size and color then start their controlled period of anaerobic fermentation for 120 hours. The fermented cherries are then placed in a special fiber sack and they are hung to allow excess mucilage to "drip" out of the sacks, where the sacks are a medium to slowly drip any humidity or extra mucilage the coffee cherries may have accumulated during the fermentation.The coffee is then placed on African beds for 20days until reaching between 10 and 11% humidity.The coffee is then packed in Grainpro bags, to conserve the level of humidity and the quality of the beans. It is then taken to the warehouse and stored in referenced shelves for the traceability records.

La Pradera is a family-owned organic estate farm in Aratoca, Santander. Four generations of the Daza Bautistas have been directly involved in the production, processing and export of exceptional, organic, specialty coffee. In the early 1970’s Mr. Héctor Daza began the transformation of the family farm into a coffee paradise, by planting diverse timber and fruit trees, creating a beautiful shade canopy for the different varieties of coffee he planted. This was the starting point of a lifelong commitment to environmental practices at La Pradera. The 1980’s were a challenging period, with low market prices and adverse climate conditions. I, Oscar Daza, third generation, assumed the leadership of La Pradera, with a vision to produce extraordinary specialty coffees, certified Rainforest Alliance, Birdfriendly and Organic for world markets.

This coffee will make your taste buds travel to the heart of Colombia,Santander and our exotic fruits-some perhaps you might have never tried before. Make sure you taste them when you visit us in Colombia. Prepare to taste notes of Curuba- also known as banana passion fruit, tamarind, tangerine,  vanilla,  a bright and sparkly acidity and a juicy lingering taste of passion fruit. Cheers!
