Maria Linarez is 53 years old and lives on her four-hectare farm with her husband, Jose Quintero.Two hectares of land are planted with 8,000 Castillo trees. She has been working with coffee for over 40 years, having purchased the farm using her savings.
Maria and her husband both work in all aspects of the farm, relying on coffee for financial security. They employe up to 4 people, with more as needed during the harvest season. They don’t use any chemicals on the farm and everything is done by hand.
The Honey Process begins with a quality filter that allows us to remove the floater coffee cherries from the process. From here, the cherries will start the de-pulping stage and will pass through a short fermentation of 24 hours in sealed tanks, before moving to the drying stage. In the drying stage, the coffee will rest in African-style raised beds for over 20 days. Finally, parchment coffee will pass through our dry milling and hand sorting stage.
The Natural Process begins with a pre-fermentation stage of 24 hours at the receival station. From here, the cherries will be moved to the drying stage; coffee will be placed in African-style raised beds for over 25 days and will be racked and rotated every 4 hours. Due to the levels of sugar and moisture, the first days will be crucial to avoid microbial activity prolongation. Finally, parchment coffee will pass through our dry milling and hand sorting stage.
