ABOUT

Tarrazu coffee is internationally renowned. It is grown in the valleys at the heart of an ideal coffee growing area with sedimentary soils rich in acid and in the shade of indigenous trees. The cherries are collected and processed in the summer, in hot and cold weather. The differences in temperature concentrate the starch in the cherries, giving a fine and gentle cup offering well-defined flavours. During the harvest, the cherries are collected manually and selectively at optimum ripeness. The warm and sunny weather in the daytime also ensures more stable and uniform drying conditions.
Once a year, when the harvest has finished, Pascuala organises a meal at their small family home for all the pickers who have finished the season. The coffee is then processed at their beneficio and dried on patios. This very beautiful fully-washed coffee comes from the Navarro farm, situated at the highest altitude.

NAVARRO'S MICROMILL

When he took over at the helm of his family farm, Eduardo Navarro Jimenez wanted to switch to specialty coffee production. The producer acquired some new farms at the same time. Today Eduardo has 7 farms, managed by himself, his wife and his 6 children. Each member of the family manages their own farm with respect for 3 fundamental values: passion, excellence and sustainability.

Because the farms are all parcelled out, the Navarros have been able to work on microlots, which they send to a small neighbouring beneficio that dries or washes the coffee before dispatch.It was during this period that Belco began working with Navarro coffees. In 2016, the family finally invested in a mill to control their own coffees. They built quite a large infrastructure equipped with Pinhalense machines for de-pulping and washing. They named the beneficio "Coffee Nace", a contraction of their surnames "Navarro" and "Ceciliano".

The producers have chosen not to use herbicides at their various farms (San Cristobal, Los Angeles, La Guaria, La Guaria 2, Rio Conejo, San Gabriel and El Rosario).
