El Boton- Sun Dried Natural Maragogipe, Antioquia Colombia
Flavor Profile: Bright blueberry, raspberry, milk chocolate, banana/mango and hints of pistachio. El Boton is an elaboratly distinctive single estate coffee from the department of Antioqia and from a coffee tree called a Maragogipe. This is a giant coffee tree that produces a giant coffee bean. Typically farmers dont plant this particular plant as it takes a lot of space per tree and therefore is a lower yielding crop. But this farm is dedicated to Maragogipe and has been since 1931. Grown at 1350 masl with annual rainfall of 95 inches and rich soil the conditions are a perfect trifecta. In addition Finca El Boton has shade grown production. With this method crop yield is smaller per hectare but the quality is unparalelled. The shade gives the beans the right humidity and temperature conditions to create a truly unique cup profile. The beans are handpicked from the branch only when ripe and are carefully dried using the sundried natural process. Varietal: Maragogipe; Altitude: 1350 masl; Soil content: Volcanic ash; Process: Sundried Natural; Location: Antioquia; Each bag ships as 12 oz. or 16 oz.

Candelaria was an old farm that was in poor condition when it came under the ownership and management of Luis Pedro Zelaya Sr. There has been a process of revitalization at Candelaria for some years now, as older trees are heavily pruned back (which takes them our of production for 2 years) or replaced completely with new plant material. The farm is still very traditional in most ways, using a shading of Grevillea and Inga trees, and processing using the typical wet-process fermentation method.
