From the Pedro Echavarria family comes this classic Colombian decaffeinated coffee. Their passion for transparent harvesting practices, processing, and quality combine to produce coffee filled with all the richness and mystery of a good Colombian. The coffee is decaffeinated using the Mountain Water process, and begins with a subtle malt flavor, enhanced by a creamy body and rich notes of white chocolate, and ends with a soft acidity and golden raisin on the finish.

Meet Don Pedro Echavarria

In the early 1900’s, Don Alejandro Angel became the first major exporter of Colombian coffee. With this legacy in mind, the husband of one of Don Alejandro’s granddaughters, Don Pedro Echavarria, established the Santa Barbara Estate in 1975. Comprised of seven contiguous farms, the estate is overseen by managers who’ve been with the Echavarria family for decades. Coffee quality and employee education is priority at Santa Barbara Estate.

Don Pedro’s vision of offering the world a Colombian coffee of superior quality is a passion shared by those who work on the estate—55 full-time workers who earn 30% more than minimum wage, and the additional 950 seasonal workers who are paid 2-5 times minimum wage depending on how much coffee they collect. Santa Barbara Estate offers free room and board for these workers in on-site dormitories so that those that come from distances are able to receive a quality meal and comfortable lodging at the end of the day.

Antioquia, Colombia

The Antioquia region lies in the central northwestern part of Colombia, where the steep slopes of the Andes grow superior coffee, though they add significant physical difficulty to the work of harvesting the coffee cherries on steep hillsides. The volcanic soil and stable climate are perfect for coffee growing, with year-long temperatures averaging between 75-80 degrees F., and the warmth of the valleys tempering the cold Andean nights higher up the mountainside. Coffee ripens slower at this high altitude, resulting in a denser, richer bean.

Before Spanish colonization, the Muiscas people occupied this region of Colombia along with the Caribs. The Spanish dialect in Antioquia has obvious Basque influences from which can be traced back to the third voyage of Columbus in 1499.
