The coffee story

Oscar's love for exotic varietals comes from his time studying at Colombia's prestigious CENICAFE, the Center for Coffee Research. It is here that he first learns about Wush Wush, and later on, through his participation at international trade shows, he is able to taste the coffee . 
In 2015, Wush Wush arrives to La Pradera and it has been adapting superbly well to the geography and climate conditions. 
This latest addition to the Colección Varietal, La Pradera's varietal garden, will provide you with an experience of a fruity, intense and vibrant coffee.

The process

The perfectly ripe cherries are harvested by hand by our expert team. Cherries then enter a classifier that 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 fermentation period of anaerobic fermentation for 36 hours. Then the cherries are pulped and the next period of anaerobic fermentation in mucilage begins for a 60 hour period. When the second fermentation period is completed, the coffee is lightly rinsed and placed in a special fiber sack and they are hung to allow excess mucilage to "drip" out of the sacks. The coffee then is placed in the pre-drying deck for a period of 20 hours to begin its dehydration phase. When it reaches 20% humidity it is then placed in raised bed for its period of slow, natural drying until it reaches 11% humidity.

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.
