THE STORY

Villamaria is a town and municipality situated in the department of Caldas, a 300km drive east from the capital Bogota. It's here that Raw Material operate a drying station as one of their many Red Associations. These associations provide funding and support for the farmers in the surrounding area, helping improve quality and therefore income for the producers. The Villamaria station processes the harvests of 30 coffee producing families who farm their crop 300m further up the mountainside. The drying station focuses on producing natural and honey lots; Villamaria sits at a lower altitude than some of their Red Association stations. Hotter temperatures at this altitude allow for better control of the drying process, combined with a dehydrator system which controls the humidity of the purpose built drying beds.
