Farmer Luz Helena Salazar has been growing coffee for 35 years and owns her own farm in Colombia, the Finca Maracay. This coffee has been exposed to a dry anaerobic fermentation for 52 hours. Once fermented, the cherries are dried on raised beds with the cherry intact.


We think it tastes like…strawberry, mint, orange, apple and caramel.
