The Coffee

Another stunning coffee brought  by Raw Material, Casa Espresso's import partners. 100% of the profit they generate goes to producers, directly through payments for coffee and through community-level investments. Villamaría’s processing station, Jamaica, was chosen due to its perfect climate and altitude for the drying of naturally processed coffee. Alongside this, the large space available meant that producing high-quality naturals at scale was a possibility not available before.

Location & Farmer

Villamaría is a Colombian municipality located in the department of Caldas. The region is fed by numerous sources of water and natural resources. Villamaría is located a few kilometres from the city of Manizales, whose urban areas are surrounded by the Chinchiná River. Our drying station “Jamaica” is located in Chinchiná,
Caldas. The station currently represents the harvests of 30 to 50 coffee producing families in the surrounding area of Villarazo, sitting at altitudes higher than the drying station itself. As Jamaica sits at a lower altitude of 1300 MASL, it is better suited to the processing of honey and natural coffees due to the hotter temperatures
found here.

This station is focused namely on the production of honey and natural lots, with the aid of Nuna dehydrator systems, controlling humidity and temperature throughout the drying process. The station processes coffee from 30 producers, 300 meters further up the mountainside
