Coffee from Colombia - Risaralda, La Estrella
When browsing through offers of hundreds of different coffees available after harvest, we search for original proposals that match the offer of the Sochaccy.co coffee shop; guaranteeing on the one hand high quality and on the other great possibilities of flavor development during roasting in the Sochaccy Coffee Roastery. Why were we interested in Colombia Santa Rosa de Cabal coffee? Several factors contributed to this. The first was the origin of the coffee: the renowned Colombian growing region - the source of the best Colombian coffee, and the second was the coffee processing method, clearly gaining in popularity with each harvest. The Colombia Santa Rosa de Cabal almost immediately fired our coffee imagination with its potential, and it only got better as the first roasts went on. But one step at a time.
This time we would like to invite you to the very heart of coffee in Colombia, the Coffee Triangle (Eje Cafetero). This is a region that lies at the junction of the four Colombian states of Caldas, Quindío, Risaralda and Tolima, at the foot of Los Nevados National Park. The Coffee Triangle of Colombia is responsible for the majority of specialty coffee cultivation in Colombia. The high quality of coffee from this area is the result of, on the one hand, an excellent combination of geographical conditions that create a unique microclimate and, on the other, the hard work of local farmers. It is also worth mentioning that the coffee in this region is grown using artisanal methods, which to a large extent classifies the crops as organic, with the coffee cherries being hand-picked from the bushes. Picking coffee by hand from the bushes allows us to select the coffee berries that are most ripe. The 18 towns in the Coffee Triangle were designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2011 as a "Coffee Cultural Landscape." In the Coffee Triangle we can find a number of plantations using traditional cultivation methods, as well as towns where coffee festivals are held, with competitions; where farmers compete with each other in the quality of their coffee, thus constantly improving the quality of their harvests. The town of Pereira, in the department of Risaralda, is considered the capital of the region.
The plantation where the Colombia Santa Rosa de Cabal coffee comes from is located in the municipality of Santa Rosa de Cabal, Department of Risaralda. The plantation is called Finca La Rivera and is located in the village of La Estrella. The plantation grows arabica coffee of the Castillo and Caturra varieties. The crops are grown at an altitude of 1,750 meters above sea level. The coffee is grown on the plantation by Julio César Madrid and Andrés Quiceno, the third generation of the family to grow coffee on the plantation.
After harvesting, the coffee is processed using the honey method. In this method, which originated in Costa Rica, only the ripest coffee berries are harvested by hand and, practically speaking, the top part of the skin is removed from the coffee berry. The soft, sweet pulp is then left on the coffee bean and the coffee so prepared is dried in the sun. The method got its name from the yellowish color of the coffee beans and their stickiness after the peel is removed. During the sun-drying process, the sweet pulp penetrates into the coffee bean, so that the coffee is naturally enriched with a large dose of sweetness reminiscent of cane sugar.
In the Colombia Santa Rosa de Cabal coffee roasted on medium, notes of strawberry, chocolate, toffee, and tropical fruit sweetness are noticeable. On the light roast, citrus sweetness comes to the fore. It is ideal for medium roasting in espresso machines and coffee makers, as well as for light roasting in alternative methods.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
What is fresh-roasted coffee?
A coffee is considered freshly roasted when a minimum of 24 hours from the roasting date has elapsed but no more than 14 days. Coffee after roasting needs 24 hours to rest-decompress, after 14 days from the date of roasting there is a loss of nearly 20% of aroma intensity as well as flavor.
Taste notes what is it?
It is the natural taste of coffee, obtained only by roasting coffee without any artificial additives or preservatives. The richness of coffee is precisely in the variety of coffee flavors coming from different regions of the world.
Which coffee roasting to choose?
If you prepare coffee with alternative methods (AeroPress, Drip, dripper, V60, Chemex...) be sure to try coffee in light roast.
If you are preparing coffee in a pressurized, pour-over or coffee maker, try coffee in medium roast; it is the most versatile coffee roast.
If you are preparing coffee in a pot, try a dark roast.
Coffee roasted light contains more caffeine than coffee roasted medium or dark. There are usually more noticeable notes of citrus, flowers.
If you're just getting started with fresh-roasted coffees or this particular coffee, it's best to try it in a medium roast for the first time. The medium roast is the most balanced roast between citrus acidity and pronounced chocolate, cocoa.
Dark roast, often associated with Italian roasting, is the exposure of cocoa, dark chocolate notes in coffee; less noticeable are fruit, floral notes. Dark-roasted coffee contains the least caffeine of all 3 roasts.
Which coffee roast has the most caffeine?
The amount of caffeine in coffee depends not only on the roasting method, but also on the type of coffee and how it is prepared. However, it is generally believed that light-roasted coffee contains slightly more caffeine than dark-roasted coffee.
Light-roasted coffee retains most of the natural flavors and aromas of the coffee bean, but has more oils and phenolic compounds, which are removed during further roasting. Therefore, in light-roasted coffee, caffeine remains in greater amounts.
What is dark coffee roasting?
Dark roasting is the process of roasting coffee beans, which leads to a very dark color and intense flavor. Coffee beans are roasted for a longer time and at a higher temperature than in light or medium roasting.
During dark roasting, the sugars in the coffee beans are caramelized and the acidity of the beans is almost completely removed. As a result, dark roast coffee has an intense, bitter flavor with notes of chocolate, caramel and nuts.
Dark roast coffee is popular in some regions, such as Italy, where dark roast espresso is often preferred. However, due to its intense taste and lack of subtle flavors, it is not the preferred roasting method for some coffee lovers.
What is a medium coffee roast?
Medium roasting (American, City Roast Medium, Regular Roast, City Roast, Breakfast Roast)is a coffee bean roasting process that lies between light and dark roasting. During medium roasting, the beans are roasted for about 10-15 minutes at a moderate temperature.
During this process, the sugars in the coffee beans begin to caramelize, which gives the coffee a sweet taste, and the acidity of the beans is gently reduced. The beans gain more complex aromas, including nutty, floral and fruity notes.
Medium roast coffee is the most commonly preferred coffee roast by coffee lovers, as it preserves the subtle flavors of the beans while adding some sweetness and fullness of flavor. Medium-roast coffee is also popular in many cafes and restaurants because it has a balanced flavor and aroma that is enjoyed by a wide range of consumers.
What is a light coffee roast?
Light roasting (Cinnamon, New England, Light Roast, Light City, Half City) is a process of roasting coffee beans that leads to a light color and delicate flavor. During light roasting, the beans are subjected to a short roasting process (about 5-7 minutes) at a relatively low temperature. During this process, the sugars in the coffee beans begin to caramelize, but not as intensely as in dark roasting. Coffee from light roasting has a pronounced acidity and delicate, fruity and floral aromas. Light roast coffees are often preferred by coffee lovers who appreciate subtle, complex flavors and aromas. Such coffees are especially popular in Scandinavian countries, where light-roasted coffee is treated like a luxury product and is drunk in smaller quantities, but with better quality. However, due to its sour taste and mildness, light-roasted coffee is not liked by all coffee lovers. Light roast coffee is popular among lovers of alternative coffee preparation.
How much coffee to buy in a coffee roaster's store?
The amount of coffee you should buy from a coffee roaster depends on your personal preferences and needs.
If you drink coffee every day and like freshly roasted coffee, it's a good idea to buy enough to stock up for 2 weeks. It is recommended that you buy enough to avoid losing freshness.
One way to determine the right amount of coffee to buy is to calculate the average amount of coffee consumed per day or per week. Based on this information, you can determine how much coffee beans you need to buy from a roaster to stock up for the right amount of time.
If you are using a pressurized coffee maker with a grinder to prepare your coffee, it is a good idea to buy such a package of coffee (75g.,250g.,500g.,1,000g.) so that you can pour all the coffee into the bean container.
It is also worth considering your taste preferences and choosing the coffee that best suits your tastes. The Sochaccy.co store offers 75g coffee samples for purchase, allowing you to try different flavors and choose your favorite type.
Ultimately, the amount of coffee you should buy from the roaster depends on your individual preferences and needs, but it's worth buying enough to avoid constantly going to the store for fresh coffee.
Which coffee is better to buy - bean or ground?
The decision between bean and ground coffee depends on several factors.
First, bean coffee usually has a longer shelf life than ground coffee because the coffee beans retain their freshness and aroma longer. Therefore, if you want to enjoy the freshest coffee, it is best to buy coffee beans and grind them just before brewing.
Secondly, ground coffee is more convenient and faster to prepare because it does not require grinding before brewing. Therefore, if you don't have time to grind coffee before each brewing, ground coffee may be more suitable for you.
Third, ground coffee offers more control over the brewing process and allows you to adjust the grind thickness to suit your taste preferences. With ground coffee, the grind thickness has already been determined, which can affect the taste of the coffee.
In conclusion, the decision between bean and ground coffee depends on your individual preferences and needs. If you want freshness and control over the brewing process, it's better to choose bean coffee and grind it just before brewing. However, if you are looking for convenience and speed, ground coffee may be more suitable for you.
How to store coffee beans?
Store in a cool, dark and dry place, vacuum sealed if possible. Oils in roasted coffee degrade when exposed to air (oxidation) and heat. As with other foods, moisture accelerates the deterioration of coffee. Store coffee in fully sealed, insulated, opaque containers. If you have the option, vacuum pump the air out of the container for maximum storage stability. Following these tips should help keep your beans fresh and flavorful for as long as possible.
