Delicious Colombian coffee from the Cauca region located on a beautiful mountainous area with the perfect altitude, climate and soil conditions to grow some of the highest quality coffee of the region. La Venta Estate Coffee is grown on a family farm where the best cherry beans are hand selected to produce coffee with the richest tasting attributes. They take pride not only on the crop, harvest and agricultural processes that make our coffee taste great, but also on our efforts to make their product social and environmental responsible.
Colombia is probably the world's best-known coffee producer and ranks second worldwide in yearly production. A high standard of excellence is maintained with great pride and careful growing on thousands of small family farms across the country. Such care and attention results in consistently good, mild coffees, with a well-balanced acidity. The rugged Colombian landscape provides the perfect natural environment for growing, but the terrain makes it difficult to transport the harvested coffee beans to production and shipment centers. Even today, this is often done by mule or Jeep.

Process for roasted coffee:Our specialty coffee process begins with the best care during the crop and the selection of the best cherry beans at harvest time. Then, we select the highest quality cherries by immersion in water and flotation method. Once the coffee is depulped we use natural fermentation to get the best tasting attributes. After washing, the coffee is sun dried at the appropriate temperature and humidity. Then, during the threshing (trilla), we select the best beans by manual selection to ensure the best quality.
