La Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta
La Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta is a lush, mountainous range standing just 42km from the Caribbean Sea. This stunning region, inhabited by Indigenous communities and settlers from Tolima, Norte de Santander and Santande, is renowned for its coffee plantations, picturesque sights, rainforests and fauna.
The coffee region covers more than fifty thousand hectares, and the plantations are distributed among 13,000 producers, equivalent to 3.9 coffee hectares per family. Coffee producers in Sierra harvest only in the second semester of the year (November-February) and have an environmentally friendly production scheme that involves certification processes such as Organic and Fair Trade. The habitants of La Sierra are highly committed to environmental protection and are passionate about the land they work on. The region is considered a natural source, where major rivers that serve as water sources to more than five departments on the Atlantic Coast are born.
La Sierra Nevada Coffee Tradition
Rodrigo Becerra Moreno's upbringing was surrounded by the production of coffee. Raised in La Fabiola, a region surrounded by coffee plantations, his family founded one of the first coffee farms in the Sierra Nevada many years ago. After inheriting the land from his mother, Rodrigo and his brother - together with Rodrigo's wife Jhemmy who picks and classifies the beans - have been renovating coffee trees and implementing new methods to improve the productivity and their income. Rodrigo has carried over the responsible practices of his time spent in La Fabiola, ensuring water is not contaminated and reused in the processing of the coffee. The production of coffee remains 100% organic.
Alongside this gorgeous coffee and also hailing from South America, is a single serve of Cascara tea. Cascara is the husk of the coffee cherry and when brewed as a tea exudes flavours of rosehip, cherry and cola. We've sourced ours from Hacienda Sonora, in the Central Valley of Costa Rica.
Cascara tea instructions: Add 5g of Cascara to 250ml just boiled water. Brew for 5 mins before straining and serving. Add sugar if desired. Enjoy!
