Local farmers, many of whom are smallholders, use traditional cultivation methods, often incorporating organic practices to maintain soil health and enhance the flavor profiles of their beans. The coffee from Villa Corzo is known for its distinctive characteristics, including balanced acidity, rich body, and complex flavor notes that can range from chocolatey and nutty to fruity and floral.

The Process

The small farmers in this region take an artisan approach to their production, taking their coffee from seed to dry parchment. The coffees are picked ripe, de-pulped and fermented for 12-17 hours. After the fermentation process, the coffee is then washed and sun dried on farmers’ yards or zarandas for 12-14 days.
