José Efrain Villada (Colombia)


Like most other farms in the San Lorenzo region, Finca Santa Rosa is small. Owner Jose Efrain Villada and his family farm the 1 hectare themselves. One advantage to this is that they control the quality of their harvest in its entirety. They do not need to rely on seasonal labor and pickers to harvest only mature cherry as instructed. They simply complete the work to spec themselves!

Finca Santa Rosa combines the best of two worlds where the high altitude of the Andean mountains combines with the careful farming and skillful processing of owner Jose Efrain Villada to create a vibrant cup. The distinctive juicy fruitiness of the coffee is layered, revealing multiple fruit notes.
