The Santa Barbara Estate is located in the southwest section of the Department of Antioquia. Don Pedro Echavarria established the Santa Barbara Estate almost three decades ago with the vision of producing and offering to the world a superior quality Colombian Coffee. This vision is proudly shared by all in the Santa Barbara Estate family. The Santa Barbara Estate is one of the few completely integrated coffee farms in Colombia, which ensures traceability and close quality control from the cherry on the tree until the moment that the coffee arrives at BCR. A combination of factors such as climate, altitude, constant care, renovation of trees, and good volcanic soil provide the basis for excellent coffee production. Education and incentive programs encourage the Estate’s workers to focus on coffee quality rather than quantity. The highly technological wet and dry mill processing is coupled with attention to detail and daily cup testing enabling the Santa Barbara Estate to deliver an exceptional and consistent high-quality Colombian coffee.Brew recommendations:
- medium-coarse grind size
- Pour some of the hot water into the dripper, thoroughly soaking the filter. Set the dripper on top of a coffee cup and allow the rinsing water to fully drain into the cup. Discard the rinsing water.
- Pour 300 grams of hot water into the dripper, thoroughly saturating the coffee grounds. Let stand, covered, for 1 minute. Uncover and quickly stir the steeping coffee to break up the cap of grounds floating on top. Let stand, covered, for 2 1/2 minutes longer.
- Set the dripper on the coffee cup and allow the coffee to fully drain into the cup.
