Located at 1550 meters above sea level, in the town of Genova, Mrs. Maria Marien de Cardona has been cultivating coffee for many years in her farm El Placer. This Farm is a real example of environmental friendly crop, where every single step counts when is about taking care of nature. It can be seen easily all the natural life surrounding, the water sources, the woodlands, fruits, wild life and all the wonders in this heirloom.
Her coffee is ofcourse SHG. They just collect those beans that are fully ripened in the exact time, processing them with clean fresh water that falls down from the mountains.
Each step is made under the strict direction of her husband “Don Octavio” who has spent his life in those territories and who is well known as one person that represents coffee growers, due to his experience and love for what he does. Maria Marien has cauturra and castillo varietals that fertilize with humus they prepare. In the cup profile, vanilla fragrances with sugar cane and citrus aromas get mixed with green apple flavor and medium acidity. A silky body finishes with a lasting aftertaste.
