  • Farmlevel Story

    Farmlevel

    The Madrid family is steeped in coffee growing excellence. Not only is Franklin joined by his father and brother coffee farming in the El Sauce region but his son, Denilson, is a formidable up-and-comer to the trade.

    La Fortuna, situated just meters above other Verve favorite, La Patepluma, is a beautiful Catuai farm that sits engulfed by the dense fog that cloaks the Santa Barbara mountain. It’s to this fog - which keeps daytime temperatures low - that Santa Barbaran coffees like Franklin’s owe their distinct complexity and dynamic acidities.

    After depulping, coffee seeds undergo a dry fermentation before a short soaking to remove excess mucilage.

    The Madrid family is dedicated to growing their specialty production alongside of Verve and has this year invested in an immaculate new solar dryer to accommodate the production of their El Sauce farms.
