LAS PALOMAS | COSTA RICA
Finca Las Palomas is run by the Garbanzo family and is named due to the various birds that can be found in the region. Don Jorge Monge Garbanzo inherited the farm from his parents in 1993, which he now runs with his wife, Flor Mayela Garcia Valverde, and their children.
During processing, the coffee cherry is moved intermittently to promote even drying and to avoid over fermentation, as well as being regularly sorted as the drying progresses to ensure superior quality. Once dried to the desired moisture content, the cherry is collected and packaged into poly bags for resting. It is stored in-cherry until the hulling process (removing the dried fruit and skin), followed by further sorting and grading.
