Ripe grains were collected manually by collectors in the region. Upon arrival at the processing plant, the coffee undergoes a washing to remove dirt and leaves that it brings from the crop, as well as classification by water to remove green and floating beans. There, the beans are subjected to a controlled fermentation process for 16 hours in a stainless steel tank. After this process, the beans were pulped in our specialty machine and the beans were placed in a stainless steel tank to be subjected to another controlled lactic fermentation process for 30 hours. To finish, the coffee was raised to the canopy above the benefiader, where it was slowly dried for approximately 20 days until obtaining adequate humidity between 10 and 12.

Hola! We are the Diaz Castillo family and we live in the village of Socorro, Santander. Finca La Esperanza is in our family since 2004, though it exists since the 1950s. We have been working with coffee for our entire lives and have been focusing on quality for a few years with the help of our partners and workers. In order to achieve that we have remodelled our benefício with new machinery to process our coffees, improving the separation of floaters, green and ripe cherries and also allowing us to experiment with new processing methods such as honey. We are committed to improve continuously and keep up to date with the coffee sector by watching webinars, talks, courses and going to events. Our family also values sustainable development and seeks to work in balance with the environment. We turn all byproducts of coffee into something constructive: the pulp is used as fertilizer, the skin is used for cascara infusion and we are also developing a coffee pulp wine!
