HISTORY

PROCESS

ON SPOT

The San Luis farm has been in the hands of Irma Tinoco, mother of Omar Arango, a family of coffee tradition and innovation for more than 50 years. More than 30 years ago Omar Arango took control of the farm, and based on his vision of having one of the best coffees in Tolima, he decided to make a transition from conventional or chemical synthesis to organic coffees. Being the first to take this risk in Colombia, Tolima, and sacrificing up to 50% of the profitability and production, they managed to have an empirical learning process that today has made it a coffee recognized for being organic and with exotic processes. The vision of the farm is to be 100% sustainable and to have an environmentally friendly environment with conservation areas and shaded coffee plantations, taking care of the water and the people that work there.

 Lactic 

 So, picture this: the Typica at the farm is getting the VIP treatment with a washed process and a touch of lactic fermentation. Think of it like a spa day for beans, soaking in that goodness for a cozy 24 to 36 hours. Then comes the sunbathing session. These beans are spread out under the sun, lounging in the canopies for a cool 8 to 12 days. Of course, they're picky about their tanning time, depending on how bright the sun's feeling that day. Can't have them getting too crispy! And then it's off to the cellar for a little stability check. They chill out there for a solid 15 to 30 days, getting their act together before they're ready to hit the shelves. It's all about that perfect balance, you know?
