This organic honey nano-lot is called Uva because we only use the ripest of cherries from our farm. They are not bright red, but of a winey colour, and the level of sweetness of the cherry is very high. As we don't have a big tank on the farm to help us remove floaters we use a small container. We always have two members of staff manually cleaning the coffee from green or overripe beans, a process that is timeconsuming but very precise. Each lot is made of several batches of ripe "uvas" and each batch is the result of no more than 2 days pickings. After cleaning, the batches are taken to a closed barrel to rest and depulped after 48 hours. As the depulping process always happens around 5 pm we leave the coffee fermenting in mucilage inside a tank until the next day at 7 am. In the morning, we lay the beans thinly on modules lined with a mesh fabric. These modules are mobile, so we can either put them inside marquesinas or expose them on the sun to dry. If the weather is good this lot takes 5 days to dry under the sun.

About the grower Translate

When my husband Alvaro was little he lived in Tolima. Life was tough, but the coffee farms were always good places to live in and work. They had water, sanitary sewers and light. Farmers had status. This had such an impact on Alvaro on his childhood that he decided that one day he would be a coffee farmer too. Granja El Sauce is a dream come true for him and also for me. Alvaro grew up to be an agronomist and I worked as a systems engineer. We lived in San Gil for most of our adult life but wanted to move to the countryside to be close to nature. We run El Sauce as a fully organic farm and have been certified for years, even at times when the premiums were not that good. We believe it is important to take good care of our surroundings and adopt an ecological and sustainable approach. Recently we have been changing our post-harvest processing protocols to improve the cup quality of our coffees. We try to help our neighbours, all coffee farmers, towards a more ethical style of farming.

Once the ordering period ends we will consolidate all coffees in a shared container. During transport, your coffee is fully insured. We will keep you informed about the shipment status.

Upon arrival of the coffee at the warehouse, you can choose between 2 delivery modes:

  • Doorstep delivery: We will take care of transport to your roastery. We will provide your coffee fully insured until it is ready for unloading from the truck at your roastery.
  • EXW (ex. warehouse) means that we will provide the coffee ready for pick-up at the terminal of the warehouse. You are responsible for organising transport and insurance from the warehouse to your roastery.

Currently, we can deliver coffee anywhere in Europe, except Hungary. For all European buyers, the coffee will be provided custom cleared in any case. Roasters in Switzerland choosing EXW will be responsible for customs clearance.

When calculating price, you can select your preferred currency: USD, CHF, EUR, or GBP.
