Adopt a coffee field from the "Finca Nápoles" farm in Santa Marta (Colombia) and receive your organic roasted coffee beans at home. Mauricio will take care of your adoption and take its picture. You will also be able to download the adoption certificate, and if you wish, plan your visit to the farm. You do not enter into any long-term commitment: Although your adoption will be renewed automatically, you will always be informed in advance and may decide to cancel your adoption at any time as long as the preparation has not yet begun.
You adopt a coffee field from our farm in Santa Marta (Colombia). The cultivation here is certified as organic by the European Union as of 2013. When placing the adoption you can choose a name which we will use to identify your coffee field. By adopting part of a coffee plantation, we'll give you the approximate yield of ten coffee plants from our farm Finca Nápoles, located in the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, Colombia. We grow and collect the fruits of your coffee plants, with which we produce two kilos of organic roasted coffee beans to send to you. A coffee plant produces an average of seven to eight kilos of coffee cherries per year. The coffee tree belongs to the Rubiaceae family and is also known as coffea. The coffee cherry is the entire fruit, as in the red one that we all know when it's ripe, or yellow depending on the variety. Given the characteristics of the farmland and as a guarantee that only ripe coffee cherries are picked, this process is carried out by hand. After the harvest, we wash and pulp the cherries. Once the beans are dry, they're taken to a threshing mill to frictionally remove a thin film that covers them, giving us the green bean. The bean is then dried in the sun, weather permitting, for about five days on a drying patio. If there isn't enough sun, this step has to be done on drying beds. All the beans are then put through a sieve that separates the ones that fail to meet a minimum size. The beans that haven't been discarded are ultimately roasted for export. Your adoption is 12 years old and its maximum lifespan is 35 years. For as long as you want to keep your adoption, and we can continue taking care of it, you can renew year after year. If your adoption stops producing for any reason, we will replace it with another, and guarantee you the delivery from the production of other units. Your coffee field produces an average of 2kg of organic roasted coffee beans each season.
Each season we will send you a box with: __2kg of organic roasted coffee beans__ * 8 x Castillo variety roasted coffee beans (250g, bag) The __Castillo__ variety has a mild, brown sugar sweetness, medium citric acidity, a chocolate and nutty aroma, and a balanced body. Thanks to the way that this speciality coffee is processed, it's characterised by its freshness and lack of bitterness, as well as a more intense aroma due to its light roast. As it's an Arabica speciality coffee, you won't need to add sugar. For grinding, any type of manual or electric grinder works perfectly. That said, we recommend a grinder that lets you adjust the thickness of the coffee so that you can use it in different types of coffee makers. We also recommend manual or automatic filter coffee makers, as you'll get to better appreciate all its aroma, fragrance and flavour. Another coffee maker that works very well for this variety is the moka pot, also known as an Italian coffee maker. Our packaging is designed to keep the coffee in the best condition. Each pack has a degassing valve, which releases the gases emitted by the coffee. This keeps the coffee in an optimal state for at least one and a half years. Store the packs in a dry place and, if possible, in the shade. The nutrition facts label can be downloaded in 'Additional Analyses'.
När får du det?
Unlike most plantations in other coffee-growing areas in Colombia, as well as in other parts of the world, in the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta there's only one harvest season. This highlights the unique and exclusive character of the coffee that we provide. It takes about eight months or thirty-two weeks from flowering for the fruit to turn cherry red and be ready for harvesting. This can happen in early November, although we've sometimes had a later harvest, as everything depends on the weather conditions over the year. In very rainy years, the ripening process is delayed much more than usual and can last until the end of December. Coffee-making processes take a long time and cannot be sped up. What's more, this coffee is transported by boat to Spain in a process that lasts about six weeks. That's why the delivery dates are so far in the future. There are also frequent delays at customs, so sometimes your coffee may vary slightly on the delivery date.
