Doctors Fredy Morales and Haller Palacios grew coffee together at Finca Cedros de Palmira in Aldea Palmira, where Dr. Haller was born. The farm’s name comes for the grow of cedars that Haller had planted in the area when he younger. Today, over 40 years later, the tall cedars provide shade for growing coffee as their extensive root structures slow soil erosion and promote water retention.

Haller’s son, Selvin Palacios, partnered with Fredy and his brother, Alejandro, to grow and sell coffee from Finca Cedros de Palmira through the Morales’ specialty coffee export company, Rosma Coffeelands.The Rosma team are frequent Cup of Excellence winners and their commitment to specialty coffee production is evident in each lot.

Cherry is handpicked and pulped in a drum pulper. Coffee is dry fermented for 24 hours and then sent through a grading channel and washed in clean water. Parchment is laid on a patio where it is raked frequently to promote even drying. Any damaged beans are removed by workers who repeatedly inspect drying parchment. The cloudier weather in the mountains enables slower drying, which can help prevent drying defects and make the coffee more stable.
