Washed Columbian Abney Coffee

Origin: Caldas, Villamaría
Process: Washed
Altitude: 1800m
Flavour: Brown Sugar, Guava & Tropical Fruits
Varietal: Variedad Colombia, Castillo Naranjal


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.

A premium home-brewed coffee is still less expensive than a coffee shop

"With consumers working from home and unable to visit their favourite coffee shops as a result of the pandemic, they have been honing in on their barista skills to get their coffee fix at home. They are also buying coffee shop branded coffee to recreate that authentic coffee shop experience.""Despite the fact that many consumers are facing economic uncertainty, premium and branded coffees have an opportunity to market themselves as affordable luxuries. The purse strings may need to tighten but a premium home-brewed coffee is still less expensive than drinks from a coffee shop. Consumers are discovering it is safer and more cost-effective to have their own coffee at home and this trend is likely to continue even once the virus is under relative control...This shift opens up a real opportunity for coffee and the products that will support them in recreating that experience at home."For more: Comunicaffe International
