COLUMBIA SANTA ANA

Explore the tasting notes of a single origin specialty coffee sourced from Colombia freshly roasted in our coffee lab, at Meron Roastery. Here is some cool info about the coffee and the farm.

 

The farm/farmer

The Anserma Cooperative is located in the western area of ​​the Caldas region. It is an agricultural center specialized in coffee cultivation.

 

The Anserma Cooperative, alongside the new general manager Luis Miguel, sought to embrace technology and move towards specialty coffee production. They built temperature-controlled areas in the warehouse to take care of the microlots that manufacturers ship. They also began to experiment with the production of naturally processed coffees for the first time, eliminating any risk for the producer. These temperature-controlled zones were originally implemented in Colombia to try to combat the extremely difficult daily challenges of the ever-changing climates of the Colombian Andes.

 

About the coffee

To start this project, they selected some local producers known for their quality to buy coffee cherries above the regular market price. From here, the cooperative then set up a sorting station to pick the ripest cherries and create uniformity. The variety used in this batch is Castillo. After being picked and separated, the coffee is then washed and fermented in closed barrels for 96 hours. Then it is placed in the drying area where it dries at 35-40 degrees for 100-120 hours.
