MOK - Colombia - Santa Rosa


Jose Efrain Villada is the owner of Santa Rosa. His one-hectare farm lies in the San Lorenzo municipality of Nariño, southwestern Colombia.

It has a floral aroma, a cup profile with distinctive juicy fruitiness. It’s layered quality reveals lychee and tangerine when hot, evolving into red fruits cooling down.

Jose Efrain Villada applies a short dry fermentation of the parchment after pulping. The mucilage that remains after pulping adds to the rich sweetness of this coffee. José dried this particular lot on sieves, which he moves inside in case it starts raining. José put much focus on singling out the best cherries on his farm, at the ideal point of maturity.
