DelAgua is a green coffee processing project, started by La Palma y El Tucán, at La Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta in Colombia.  In Colombia, where the vast majority of coffees are processed using the washed method, DelAgua aims to preserve the natural microclimate and ecosystem by focusing only on natural (dried) and honey processing, using minimal water.

The results in the cup are spectacular, given the experience and expertise of Filipe Sardi, owner of La Palma y El Tucán as well as the feedback from world-class brewers such as Stefanos Domatiotis, 2014 World Brewers Cup Champion.

Yair Florez is a young coffee grower from Magdalena. He owns a 3-hectare land in Cienaga where he has planted 12 thousand Castillo coffee trees. The trees on his farm, El Oasis, have between 2 and 5 years old, so many of them will start giving fruits until next year.

The Natural Process begins with a pre-fermentation stage of 24 hours at the receiving station. From here, the cherries will be moved to the drying stage; coffee will be placed in African-style raised beds for over 25 days and will be racked and rotated every 4 hours. Due to the levels of sugar and moisture, the first days will be crucial to avoid microbial activity prolongation. Finally, parchment coffee will pass through our dry milling and hand sorting stage.
