Product Description

Colombia Bethy Plaza 121 Project coffee is grown through a direct relationship with the farmer, in partnership with green coffee traders, D R Wakefield.

Bethy Plaza belongs to the Nasa people indigenous to Colombia. She lives in the village of Cerro Alto in northwest Popayan. Bethy is a native Nasa Yuwe speaker, which is an endangered language of the region.

Firstly Colombia Bethy Plaza is picked by hand from shade grown trees and is de-pulped the same day. The trees grow at an altitude of 1600 metres on the La Esperanza farm. Prior to washing and drying in a solar parabolic dryer, the beans are fermented for 16 hours. Finally, the coffee goes to the co-operative mill for grading and export. In addition the removed pulp is reused on the farm as fertiliser.

Our direct relationship with Bethy Plaza enables us to forward-buy her entire coffee harvest. As a result, we continue to obtain exceptional coffee. In return Bethy receives a guaranteed source of income for her workers and family.

We roast this coffee medium, which lends rich notes of chocolate and ripe fruit. We recommend brewing as a filter or pourover. Use 18g of coffee per 250ml of water.
