Villamaría, situated not far from El Fénix community wet mill and farm, is a drying station in Chinchiná, Caldas. The station currently represents the harvests of 30 coffee producing families in the surrounding area of Jamaica, sitting at altitudes higher than the drying station itself in the area of Villarazo. As Villamaría sits at a lower altitude, it is better suited to the processing coffees due to the hotter temperatures found here.
Once pulped, they are moved to raised African beds, with consistent airflow. As soon as the parchment is a relative humidity of between 15 – 20%, we begin using the mechanical dehydrator to complete the process, with consistent control of the temperature and humidity.
Raw Material are our supplier for this coffee, and we are very excited to be working with them.
Their purpose is to ensure that coffee provides stable and sustainable incomes for producers whose livelihoods depend on it. They work with a network of small-holder farmers and dedicated global coffee buyers to facilitate trade at stable, sustainable prices while improving coffee quality, yields, and community outcomes.
100% of the profit they generate goes to producers, directly through payments for coffee and through community-level investments.
All orders come with free shipping as standard.
