ORGANIC COFFEE PRODUCED IN THE SIERRA NEVADA COLOMBIA
CREATOR | HELMUT ULLRICH
EL ORIGEN FARM | SIERRA NEVADA
Soul Seed is a living dream. It is conceived through the united force of the local farmer, whose combined dedication has flowered in order to create the best organic coffee in the Sierra Nevada, a territory already rich in coffee, cacao, fruit trees as well as native forests. This dream has created the opportunity for local farmers to perpetuate and apply their knowledge, obtained over generations, in planting and harvesting coffee, resulting in incredible organic varieties of special recognition. This diversity gives us the possibility to experiment with flavors, aromas, colors and unique preparations.
We are delighted to have the privilege of taking care of this sacred Colombian territory, and to demonstrate through Soul Seed the Love we dedicate to the production of coffee with organic and sustainable cultivating methods.
Our wish is to offer you the best specialty coffee, and with your support continue to develop an ecosystem of conscientiousness in the planting and production of coffee in Colombia.

Drying of black honey processed coffee
OUR PROCESSING METHODS
After many trials and errors, we developed the perfect processing
techniques for various coffee flavours.
HONEY - DOUBLE FERMENTED - WASHED
- Honey processed: "Pulped natural" or "honey process" is a method in which the fresh coffee cherries are de-pulped, but allowed to dry without washing. Most of the cherry is gone, but the remaining golden, sticky mucilage is reminiscent of honey, which is where the process gets its name from. There are three types depending on the sugar level of the mucilage: yellow, red and black. Taste: A pleasant middle ground with an extra hint of sweetness. Complex, sweet, heavy-bodied, and with a mellow acidity, honeys are delicious! Available as City Roast
- Double fermented: In the double fermentation processing method, farmers let the coffee cherries pre-ferment before de-pulping them while closely monitoring their sugar levels and temperature. After pulping, beans get fermented for a second time until ready to be washed. Taste: The sugars in the coffee bean are left to ferment, this gives the bean a richer and exceptionally complex taste. Available as City Roast
- Washed: This process involves the removal of the cherry which afterwards are processed in fermentation tanks for 18 hours. The fermentation process removes the remaining flesh and mucilage. Then they are washed with water until clean and ready to be dried on African drying beds. Taste: Clear and vibrant notes. Removing all of the cherry prior to drying allows the intrinsic flavors of the bean to shine. Available as City & Cinnamon Roast
OUR ROAST TYPES
