Coffee with a Low Carbon Footprint
Paula and Samuel are partners both in life and in business that shares their passions for coffee. They are the leaders in the production of specialized coffees on their farm in Santa Elena in a town in the state of Antioquia called Ciudad Bolívar. This is a privileged location at the biological corridor of Citará in the Southwest region of Antioquia.
Samuel and Paula, share a common vision of professionalizing coffee production with a low carbon footprint. Samuel has been a leader in the research sector and has worked closely with governmental entities such as COLCIENCIAS and Ruta N seeking to bring science and technology to agricultural practices. On the other hand, Paula worked in the financial sector leading commercial teams and today both are dedicated to the pursuit of sustainable coffee production.
Their process is innovative and outstanding. Starting with the system of harvesting and then passing to the fermentation stage where they carefully design different fermentation processes to get impeccable characteristics. Afterward, the beans get to the process of sun drying at an exceptional solar house that enables them to highlight the notes of the beans with the controlled atmosphere in order to deliver natural and honey-processed beans. Once the coffee beans are ready, the storage and stabilization are as important as the other stages, they rest their beans for a period of time giving them the last touch of delicacy.
Santa Elena operates under the “cherry center” model in which their neighbors can deliver their harvested cherries and the team at Santa Elena can process them with their sustainable practices. This model allows Paula and Samuel to have control of the quality of the coffee beans and also benefits their neighbors.
