Origin Story

The El Puente processing facility is located in Fundador township, Palestina, Huila, Colombia. “El Puente” translates to “the bridge”, named not only for the footbridge that spans a nearby river, but more importantly representing the connection that the processing facility creates between local smallholder producers and the global specialty coffee industry. The facility is just a 20 minute drive to the coffee centers of Pitalito and downtown Palestina, and is strategically located in an area with a high density of coffee to allow easy delivery of cherries by local coffee producers.

The facility is supported by community investment in the sustainable development of rural areas and is part of a social impact project started by Clear Path Coffee in 2018 with the goal of addressing common problems faced by smallholder coffee producers in the region.

This lot of El Puente is Honey processed, beginning with a 24-hour fermentation in cherry in the coffee harvest sacks. Next, floaters are removed and the remaining healthy coffee cherries are depulped to separate the seed from the fruity outer skin of the cherry. Coffee dry ferments in an open tank for another 24 hours before being transferred to the solar dryer for 3-5 days. The remaining mucilage left on the beans during the fermentation and drying stages adds sweetness to the final cup. The drying process is completed in a mechanical dryer at a maximum temperature of 35° C until reaching 10.5-11% humidity.
