This coffee is the collection of various lots from the three farms that together form a geological terrace ‘terraza’ on the Santa Barbara mountain just outside of El Cedral. Two lots sit on the top of the terrace while the third skirts beneath them on steeper slopes planted with the flagship Pacas and other supporting varieties that offer a balanced representative expression of this unique site and the classic Santa Barbara mountain terroir.
La Terraza is the combined lot of three adjacent family producers. Step brothers Milton Castellon and Alexi Moreno were the first producers Saint Frank partnered with in 2012 followed by Alexi’s father Ubaldo in 2015. Saint Frank is closer to these coffees and family of producers than perhaps any other relationship and we are proud to have brought their coffees to the specialty coffee market. La Terraza represents the unique characteristics and potential of this site as well as the relationship and community formed between this family and Saint Frank.
