Located in La Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta in Colombia, DelAgua Coffee is the first to adopt La Palma & El Tucan’s Neighbours & Crops model, working with small scale producers in the municipality of Cienaga, Magdalena.
This coffee comes to us from Marcos Antonio Navarro and his wife Rosa Estella who have been working in coffee for 30 years. After working on other farms during harvest for 10 years, Don Marcos was able to purchase his three hectare farm where he has planted 15,000 Castillo trees. Marcos and Rosa have 8 children, 5 boys who assist with cherry picking and wet milling and 3 girls who oversee the dry mill.
We’re lucky to showcase three naturally processed Castillo coffees from DelAgua Coffee. These coffees are from the same region, of the same varietal with the same process methods. Explore all three individually, or in this pack to see how microclimates and different producers impact the final cup.

You may have noticed that we have stopped labelling some coffees as “Filter Roast Profile”. We felt that our previous labelling of microlots did not do justice to our coffees and what we think they are capable of. We want you to feel free to use the coffee any way you like. Read more here.
