Very tasty!

Operated by Julio Cesar Madrid, Finca La Riviera is located in Vereda La Estrella in the municipality of Santa Rosa de Cabal in the Risaralda department of Colombia. The farm is situated near the Los Nevados Natural National Park, a 58,300 hectare reserve surrounding the northern volcanic complex formed by Nevado del Ruiz.

La Riviera has an elevation of 1750 meters above sea level, giving the 40 hectare property temperatures ranging 18–28°C year-round. This climate provides ideal conditions for harvesting the more than 10 varieties planted on the farm, which makes La Riviera the farm with the most varieties amongst its related farms in Café UBA, an alliance of three farms from Risaralda including Finca Buenos Aires, Finca Milán, and Finca La Riviera.

This lot of Purple Caturra coffee underwent Natural processing. Floaters are sorted out and then the ripe coffee cherries are placed in the solar dryer for five days, followed by roughly 22 days on raised beds in the shade. The moisture content of the cherries is monitored throughout the process and cherries are turned to avoid the formation of any mold or mildew or collection of moisture. Coffees dry until they reach the desired 10.5-11% humidity.
