About the Coffee
Maria Cenaida Flor has been producing coffee for 15 years and she considers it a family enterprise. Her farm La Esperanza is located in the municipality of Totoro in the department of Cauca and has 4 hectares planted with coffee and various other fruit trees, yuca, corn, and lulo.
The coffee is picked ripe when the cherries turn purple, then they are fermented for 72 hours in airtight plastic containers, after they are de-pulped and sun-dried for 15-18 days with the mucilage still on.
