The Flavour Profile

A complex and versatile coffee that brews as well in a cafetière as it does an espresso, bursting with the traditional flavours of molasses and a honey-like finish. Delicious!

 

The Little Details

This coffee comes from Mercedes farm in a town called San Bernardo de los Farallones del Citará , Ciudad Bolivar, Antioquia in Colombia farm, where it is fully washed and dried in raised beds. It’s grown 1750-1850 meters above sea level. It is 100% Caturra varietal coffee beans.

 

About the Process

This lot is a blend of two microlots within Finca Las Mercedes: La Isla and La Cruz. The cherries are selectively hand harvested before being delivered to the farm’s state-of-the-art mill to be pulped on the same day. After pulping, the coffee is fermented twice. The first fermentation is anaerobic, occurring at cool temperatures for 25 hours. Afterwards, the coffee is fermented aerobically for an additional 25 hours before being eco-pulped, fully washed and graded via the canal. Next, beans are delivered to dry on raised beds, where they are regularly turned until they reach optimal humidity.
