The Farm

After years of stagnant prices and increasing costs, farming at Finca Santa Teresa was becoming unsustainable. That was until in 2019, with the help of Cari Coffee, Jorge Esteve started producing smaller lots and was able to sell his coffee as specialty. 

Santa Teresa is a mountain water decaffeinated coffee.  You can expect flavours of toffee and brown sugar in the cup.

Harvesting at Santa Teresa

Social and Environmental Responsibility

For years, Jorge Esteve was able to sell his coffee via the commodity market. However, due to shortages in agricultural workers and increasing production costs, managing Esteve’s 180 hectares of coffee was becoming unmanageable.  This was until 2019 when Jorge began working with Cari coffee: helping to instead produce smaller lots of quality coffee. Since partnering with Cari, Jorge has made several changes to his processing techniques, including defining different plots according to variety and altitude, controlling fermentation time and temperature, removing defects, and securely storing his parchment. 

Santa Teresa is a 430 hectare farm with only 180 hectares dedicated to coffee production. The rest of the farm is dedicated to conservation.

Mountain Water Decaffeination

This unique non-chemical decaffeination process uses the clear pure waters from the highest mountain in Mexico, the Pico de Orizaba, known as Citlatepetl is the indigenous language. 

The process works by immersing the green beans in water in order to extract the caffeine content. The water preserves the soluble flavour components of the green beans, and this protects the original characteristics of the coffee. 

In order to remove the caffeine from the water containing these soluble flavour elements, the water is passed through a filtration system. This produces a solution comprising the origin mountain water and the soluble coffee flavours, now free from caffeine.
