Description:Santa Clara is located in the southern slopes of the beautiful Antigua Valley, between 5,100 and 6,000 feet, and is privileged to have one of the finest volcanic soils to produce specialty coffee. The preservation of its natural condition is a priority for the owners. The farm is also under a very strict control of shade, allowing the coffee trees to receive the exact amount of sunshine required to produce this fine, exquisite and aromatic coffee. The hand picked fruit is processed and washed in a traditional wet mill with crystal clear water. Then patiently sun dried for days in patios, giving each bean a distinctive blue-green color. This sun dried coffee has the highest standards of quality in Antigua. Every step in the drying process at the mill is monitored constantly to maintain the quality.
