Villamaría's processing station, Jamaica, was chosen due to its perfect climate and altitude for the drying of naturally processed coffee. Alongside this, the large space available meant that producing high-quality naturals at scale became an option previously essentially off-the-cards to local producers.


The Corozal farmers represent one such group of producers. Corozal is the highest area on the steep mountainsides of Villamaria. Situated towards the Otun lagoon, the area is located 25 minutes by car from Finca La Aurora, Villamaria’s buying station.


This area is also known as Tierra Fria, or the Cold Land, where some farms sit as high as 2100 MASL. The combination of altitude and cold weather provides a particularly interesting microclimate for the farms of the Cold Lands.
