Villamaria - Colombia

Villamaría, situated not far from El Fénix our community wet mill and farm, is our drying station in Chinchiná, Caldas.
The station currently represents the harvests of 30 coffee producing families in the surrounding area of Jamaica, sitting at altitudes higher than the drying station itself in the area of Villarazo. As Villamaría sits at a lower altitude, it is better suited to the processing coffees due to the hotter temperatures found here.
Once pulped, they are moved to raised African beds, with consistent airflow. As soon as the parchment is a relative humidity of between 15 - 20%, we begin using the mechanical dehydrator to complete the process, with consistent control of the temperature and humidity.
