Managed by Ricardo Zelaya, Finca Santa Clara is a 90 hectare farm that sits on the southern slopes of the Volcán de Agua, in the Antigua Valley.All the coffee harvested at Finca Santa Clara are hand picked and sorted before being transported to the wet mill which is located on the property and owned by Ricardo. This particular lot is pulped and fermented for 14-22 hours and then washed to remove any remaining pulp before being dried on raised beds under a canopy. After drying the coffee is then milled at Ricardo’s dry mill.
Roast is definitely on the lighter side making it great for a pour-over brew. You really get the fruitiness of the berry and the acidity is nice and tangy. I'll be ordering again.
