The Producer

Delagua Coffee Paradise is intent on protecting water resources at origin. More than preserving the beauty and biodiversity of Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, their greater concern is conserving water to ensure there will always be enough for the resident families to use daily, especially to drink and grow food. They are single-minded about not contaminating the groundwater and waterways. As such, they focus on fine-tuning the natural and honey processing methods to produce coffees that are all at once exotic, juicy, and clean.

Their relationship with smallholder farmers in the Cienaga Magdalena municipality allows them to source coffee cherries cultivated at altitudes 1300 to 1800 MASL. In this unique microclimate, temperature ranges from 14° to 23° Celsius allowing for a greater concentration of sugars in the coffee.

The Process

Delagua’s deliberate approach to natural processing challenges the notion that the resulting coffee could be unsuitably funky. This allows them to produce vibrant, new cup profiles without compromising clarity.

After undergoing floatation, manual sorting, and disinfection, this coffee was fermented for 300 hours at a constant temperature of 25°C in covered, valved tanks. This anaerobic environment generated lactic acids, which have been observed to boost the pleasant characteristics of the coffee.
