Santa Barbara is a peacefully municipality that was relatively unaffected by the socio-political situation. It is only an hour drive away from the city of Medellin. However it remains a town that is not frequently visited due to its interesting geographic location high up on a mountain peak called the “Balcony of Sur-Oeste Antioqueño”
Santa Barbara is actually the town in Antioquia with the most lightning strikes per year. It is said that due to this situation the people of Santa Barbara were pushed to create closer family traditions by staying together in the home for protection against the elements (lightning). Our producers of our Single Estate Santa Barbara coffee show exemplary family values by staying together over the generations to keep their family’s farm and traditions thriving. They work together to foster innovation in their processing assuring continuous development and improvements of their harvests year after year.
