Our Current Coffees

 

SANTA BARBARA ESTATE COLUMBIAN

The Santa Barbara Estate is located in the southwest section of the Department of Antioquia. Don Pedro Echavarria established the Santa Barbara Estate almost three decades ago with the vision of producing and offering to the world a superior quality Colombian Coffee. This vision is proudly shared by all in the Santa Barbara Estate family. The Santa Barbara Estate is one of the few completely integrated coffee farms in Colombia, which ensures traceability and close quality control from the cherry on the tree until the moment that the coffee arrives at our roastery.

 

A combination of factors such as climate, altitude, constant care, renovation of trees, and good volcanic soil provide the basis for excellent coffee production. Education and

incentive programs encourage the Estate’s workers to focus on coffee quality rather than quantity. The highly technological wet and dry mill processing is coupled with attention to detail and daily cup testing enabling the Santa Barbara Estate to deliver an

exceptional and consistent high-quality Colombian coffee.
