The region of Caldas and the municipality of Palestina, (an area with volcanic soil and optimum microclimate for coffee production) has a great production of Poema Specialty variety of coffee. This is a notable achievement by a new producer, Sebastian Munoz, who acquired his farm, El Poema, from his father in 2016 with a dream to take coffee production to a higher level.
El Poema coffee is produced under strict regulations, with strict quality standards, special harvesting techniques (which ensure the final uniformity of the product), prolonged control of the fermentation process (which guarantees the effective development of alcohol, the enhancement of acidity and the sweetness, rich aroma and fruity flavours of the coffee), while also ensuring a clean production with zero contamination from the water. At the same time, thanks to the Honey, Natural and Washed processing methods, a uniformly differentiated product is achieved and as a result our coffee cup is filled with intense acidity levels, sweet, fruity highlights and a balanced body which guarantees a unique and very good palatable experience.
GETTING TO KNOW THE DIFFERENT COFFEE PROCESSING METHODS
The honey method is the same as the washed method up until the point where the shell is separated from the rest of the fruit. In this one, instead of the fermentation taking place and the separation of the pulp, the fruit goes straight for drying along with the pulp. The fruit is spread onto beds in order to avoid contamination from the ground.
