The coffee story

Maricela Esperon, like many young coffee farmers had emigrated in her early 20s to the city to find work and better job opportunities. After her dad fell unwell, she decided to come back to her hometown of Santa Maria La Asuncion and help her father with the coffee farm in which he had worked his whole life. She looked relentlessly for better market opportunities until she meets Ensambles who accompanied her to process her coffee natural to create a unique profile for the area. Nobody does naturals in the region because of the extremely cold nights and frequent rains during the drying season. Maricela built a shaded drying patio with raised beds and dries her coffee over 30-45 days, a contrasting practise from the normal 2-3 day patio drying that is commonly seen in the area. The farm is 2-hours walk from the house and they now transport the cherries with a horse.

The process

Careful picking on the tree and post-picking manual selection of cherries. The coffee is then laid on raised beds to be dried over 30-40 days under shade, and entered every night in the house so it does not re-humidify.
