ABOUT THE PROCESS
- Cherries are harvested above 24ô brix's
- Cherries are soaked in water for 3 hours. Initial anaerobic cherry fermentation CM for 6 hours with Mossto*
- Coffee is sun dried on African beds for 22 days
- Final humidity stabilization for 5 days inside a warehouse, then coffee is finally stored on grain pro bags
- After the final stabilization of 8-10 days, coffees are cupped and lots organized.
*Mossto is just crushed cherry pulp, a technique similar to wine makers, it gives the microbes extra sugar to process however the microbes are naturally occuring, not introduced.
ABOUT SANTUARIO PROJECT
The Santuario Project was founded by Camilo Merizalde, who started with a clear vision and desire to create a unique farm, capable of producing the best specialty coffees in Colombia. With quality coffee as the focus, he realised that the key was to create a biodynamic and diverse environment which will benefit the coffee as well as the volcanic soil and surrounding ecosystem in the long run. This is important for the varieties at Finca Santuario because they are high quality, typically low yielding and often vulnerable in comparison with other varieties grown in Colombia. The harmonious relationship that Finca Santuario facilitates between the plants and their surrounding environment allows for the creation of some of the most spectacular coffees available from Colombia. Santuario became an international entity in 2021, expanding to Costa Rica and Brazil and later into Mexico partnering with our ECOM network.
