About this Single Origin Geisha Coffee

La Negrita is the passion project for Mauricio Shattah.

The name itself is his term of endearment for his wife, Liliana and is his gesture of gratitude that she has been his inspiration for all his greatest passions.

In his “previous lives”, he was a doctor, saxophonist, professional golfer, restauranteur, go kart-racer, and he speaks 4 languages to boot.

He now applies all of his skills and knowledge, particularly his medical background, to exploring complex concepts behind fermentation and processing.

This particular lot, for example, was anaerobically fermented with added yeast at 20°C in a climate controlled room (at the farm), before being dried in a humidity-free greenhouse.

We have bought from Mauricio and visited every year since 2016.

La Negrita is located at 1.780-2.100 masl, features four natural springs, rich volcanic soils and permanently shade grown coffee trees.
