 Bethy Plaza belongs to the Nasa people indigenous to Colombia and lives in the village of Cerro Alto in northwest Popayan. She is a native Nasayuwe speaker, an endangered language of the region.
The coffee is picked by hand from shade grown trees and de-pulped the same day. The beans are fermented for 16 hours prior to washing and drying in a solar parabolic dryer. The coffee then goes to the CENCOIC co-operative mill for grading and export.
The removed pulp is used on the farm as fertiliser for the coffee trees and for many other plants growing on the farm including guineo, banana, citrus and nacadero which add to the bio-diversity.
We roast this coffee medium in colour. The flavour is rich and chocolatey with a hint of fruit and gentle acidity.

We recommend making this coffee in a filter/pour over. Use 18g fine ground coffee per 250ml water.

    Good quality coffee. Medium grind and water at 90C for best results.

    I recently ordered this and it is excellent.
    I love the Galapagos San Christobel and lighter sweeter flavours generally if this helps.
