About Delagua: 

By using only natural and honey processing methods, aiming to reduce water usage by 880,294 liters per year (compared to traditional washed methods that use up to 40 liters per Kg).

Our coffees are the result of a collaboration between our team and local coffee growers that inhabit our region. By adopting the Neighbors & Crops relationship coffee model from La Palma & El Tucan, we have been able to challenge the status quo and positively impact traditional coffee farmers at La Sierra Nevada.

DelAgua produces green coffee at La Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta in Colombia. A magical region with the highest mountain close to the ocean in the world.
Our microclimate is as diverse as sacred. Several springs nourish the most unbelievable fauna and flora; a resource and most treasured asset which we are committed to guard.
At DelAgua Coffee, water has become our greatest treasure and its conservation, our purpose. As challenging as this statement is when it comes to producing coffee, we have called this our mission. DelAgua produces coffees through a community–based model using the minimum amount of water in their processing, encouraging our team and the traditional coffee growers inhabiting the region to become the guardians of biodiversity.
