Finca Santa Elena was founded in 2000 by Samuel Roldan and Paula Concha. Its state-of-the-art processing facility includes an ecological depulper to use less water and prevent contamination, very clean and organized fermentation tanks, and a solar dryer made of glass over a metallic structure. After the picking, cherries are floated to remove defects and then brought to the solar dryer with raised beds. Once on the raised beds, the coffee is kept in thin layers and turned every two hours to guarantee an even drying process and avoid any defects or problems from excess moisture. The dryer also controls moisture and temperature automatically and keeps the drying process even day and night. The drying process takes 20 to 25 days.
This farm epitomizes efficiency and environmental stewardship. Samuel and his team are leading the charge in reducing impact and controlling waste. Biofuel creation through coffee cherry compost is a revolutionary step towards sustainability.
