The coffee is named after Sara Gutierrez, who owns the coffee farm and processes the beans herself. Her project is a family dream, where Sara and her husband lead the processing of special coffees. They seek to give a twist to traditional coffee growing in order to advance and preserve this occupation in the face of high production costs and decreasing labour availability in the field.
El Silencio farm in Buenavista Quindío (the heart of Colombia) is located in the central mountain range of Colombia between 1600 and 1700 meters above sea level. This coffee comes from the farm’s most special batch, grown at the highest altitude on the farm and using a variety called Colombia Amarillo (Yellow Colombia). These two factors give the coffee a unique profile.
