About this coffee

At Finca Soledad, every step of the process is done with the utmost attention to detail and care for nature, both day and night. The unique lots they produce are a reflection of the moment, the hard work of the pickers, the balance of microorganisms in the soil, and the weather. Everything works together in harmony to create a work of art from nature. This nanolot of 25kg was carefully handpicked in January 2023, composed of only the ripest and best coffee cherries, with a Brix value ranging from 18 to 22. To emphasize the terroir of the region, minimal amount of water was used during the intermediate steps of the process. The cherries were fermented in closed tanks for a total of four days, and then dried in a tightly controlled manner over the course of four weeks in a dark room using special air dryers until the desired level of residual moisture was reached.

ORIGIN INFO

The Farm

Situated on a stunning mountainside, Finca Soledad overlooks a picturesque valley through which the Intag River flows. Desiring to return to the earth after his career as an explorer and mountaineer, Pepe purchased the four hectares of land in 2010. It was then that his new life as a specialty coffee producer began. The area had previously been deforested, and Pepe and his team have worked hard to replant the land with 25,000 trees, gradually restoring the region to its former lush beauty. Growing coffee was far from easy, presenting Pepe with many challenges, but Finca Soledad has become increasingly sustainable, and a place of peace and contentment for all who live and work there. When asked what makes the farm so special, Pepe replies: “This is my life, this is where I find peace.” The unique aromas of the farm owe much to the tranquil atmosphere of the country, and the varieties cultivated here include Typica Mejorado, Sidra, Geisha from Ethiopia and Panama, Caturra, and Castillo.
