Finca Santa Maria is one of nine farms within La Pradera in Santander, and is run by 22 women, all heads of household. They strive to produce coffee in harmony with the natural world. The farm is certified with the Con Manos de Mujer seal, which verifies that the coffee was produced by the work of women producers, that share the labor of planting, tending, pruning, harvesting and processing the coffee. This lot underwent the Honey process, where ripe cherries are harvested,cleaned and sorted before being fermented whole for 22h. The pulped cherries are then anaerbically fermented with controlled temperature.
