We Traveled to the Andes Mountains for the perfect cup!

Going on a journey to the heart of the Andes Mountains for the perfect cup. After traveling over 2,400 miles to Medellín, Antioquia, Colombia we had a 4 hour drive through the beautiful mountains and winding roads to find Carolina Posada's coffee plantation. Upon arrival we explored and got to learn about the story of Mina Rica Coffee. We were taken on an extensive tour of the steep coffee producing mountain sides where we got to meet the people that pick the coffee cherries. It was incredible to see them scaling the damp mountain side with ease. All the while I was crawling on all fours trying to keep up with them. Then we toured the Mill where the coffee cherries are separated from the coffee seed and the exterior cascara fruit shell. Mina Rica is a young female-owned coffee producer and we were honored to be invited to their homeland and farm.
