Though farm owner Rodrigo Palaez & manager Cesar
Osario have been working with Unity and our importing
partner, Cereza, to improve their washed offerings,
we love this farm for its stunning naturals.
The key is dialing in their drying set up, using
multiple machines to both slow down and control the
process. They add and remove heat to emulate the sun.
Each lot is graphed with temperature and time curves,
much like roasting coffee. This valuable information
will both be translated into blockchain for
transparency, as well as used for future harvests to
achieve coffee this good.
Rodrigo is a local specialty coffee leader, writing a
well-read newspaper column. He and his wife are very
successful orthadontists in the nearby city of
Manizales. They love fitness, running marathons, and
bicycling with their son.
This large farm is an absolute stunner. Towards the
top are experimental plots with a varietal garden to
ensure genetic diversity for years to come.
We are proud to source this perennial Unity offering
exclusively for Coffee Commissary.
