Grown above 2,000 metres above seal level (m.a.s.l), this Washed lot from the Jamaica processing station in Villamaria, Colombia and gives us sweet black grape upfront with clementine acidity hitting the side of your mouth, and a beautiful chocolate aftertaste.
Villamaria is a municipality in the Caldas region, fed by numerous water sources and natural resources aplenty, it makes for particularly interesting coffee farming. This lot comes from Corozal, the highest area within Villamaria, sitting between 2,000-2,100 (m.a.s.l), and is also known as the Cold Land or Tierra Fria, after its cold weather. The combination of the cooler weather and the high altitude makes for an exceptional microclimate for any farm in Corozal.
Jamaica is a Raw Material processing station located in the Chinchina area of Caldas and represents the harvests of around 30 to 50 coffee producing families in the surrounding area of Villarazo.
For the Villamaría washed coffees, cherries are delivered to La Aurora on the day they are harvested. Depending on the time of year and amount of coffee being processed they are either processed directly at La Aurora or are taken to Jamaica for processing.
