Producer Nery Rioja grows this coffee on his small 2.5-hectare plot at the La Lucuma farm. Nery and his family live and work on the farm, with the additional support of 4 employees during the harvest months of July to October.
The farm is situated at 1900 masl and grows Caturra only. Trees are installed on level curves to prevent soil erosion and organic fertilisers only are used to maintain soil health.
Once picked the coffee is rested in sealed bags under shade for 16 hours before being pulped. After pulping the coffee is fermented for 30 hours. After fermentation the coffee is washed, sun dried for 30 minutes to allow for drainage then moved for drying again where it will rest for 18 to 24 days.
