Specialty coffee - Colombia Bucaramanga
Bucaramanga is a Colombian region located in the department of Santander, in the north of Colombia. Bucaramanga is considered the capital region of this department. In total, the department of Santander has about 50,000 hectares for growing coffee and hosts more than 30,000 producers, which ultimately only represents 5% of the weight harvested. At the heart of this department, coffee is produced at more than 1,200 meters above sea level. In order to slow the growth and make the coffee complex, the trees are covered under "parasol" fabrics. This technique consists in creating a much more stable environment for the coffee tree with a better controlled temperature. 55% of the producers grouped together in the heart of this department have no more than one hectare of production. The producer families manage the plantation, harvest, delivery to the department for treatment themselves.
What is specialty coffee?
Specialty coffee is a top-of-the-range coffee known as “rare”, with unique characteristics in the world. It is cultivated in the highest altitudes of the world, in family plantations whose objective is the superior quality, signed by a manual harvest in order to guarantee the perfection of the grain. The terroir coffees are carefully sourced for the care taken by the producer, a superior manual and selective harvest, full traceability, a cultivation method and a respected and controlled treatment process.
What is the Score?
The Specialty Coffee Association (SCA) defines a high standard coffee analysis procedure to assess all the specifics of specialty coffee. SCA determines the value of odor, aroma, body, acidity, possible defects. A coffee is rated on a scale of 100, and must obtain a minimum score of 80 points to be able to be determined as "specialty coffee".
