    This coffee is a beautiful yellow bourbon variety, that has undergone a unique double fermentation process to extract maximum flavour.

    Fermentation in coffee processing is an increasingly utilised procedure to enhance flavour development and create a softer body and complex acidity. Taking the flavour profile even further is this particular bean's drying process. Dried for a period of 18 days in a controlled environment on raised beds under UV light and fans, these beans produce an intensity and consistency that is unparalleled amongst most Colombian coffees.

    Finca Santuario began 22 years ago, when Camilo Merizalde had the desire of creating a very unique farm capable of producing the best specialty coffees in Colombia. Rather than focus on quantity, Camilo decided to focus on quality as a driver of profitability. He quickly realised that biological diversity was paramount in creating an environment capable of producing excellent cup quality with long term sustainability. As such Finca Santuario is set out in such a way as to encourage a vast swathe of plant and animal diversity working symbiotically with the coffee plants.
