Macho - 1

For the fourth year we’re very pleased to offer coffee from Efrain “Macho” Naranjo and his son Herbert, and this time it’s one of our favourite varieties for it’s soft fruity, floral tones: Villa Sarchi. Macho grew up around coffee but spent some nine years of his life in New Jersey as a bagel baker before returning home to buy his own coffee farms. The steep hills sloping down from the Santa Rosa 1900 mill where this coffee is processed are lined with mesh tables that let the sun and air gently dry the coffee. These drying beds have purposely been built close to a cliff edge which falls away sharply, meaning that coffees drying at one side of the beds catch the cool updraft and dry slower and at a cooler temperature than the rest of the coffee on the tables. This allows Macho to experiment with certain drying parameters, which is a flexibility that many other producers don’t have.
