ABOUT THIS COFFEE

This Colombia is a solid new addition to the ranks of our Roaster's Reserve offerings. It is wonderfully fruit-forward with a bit of added depth and complexity that comes from the 24-hour fermentation process. While slightly less bright than the Costa Rica Termico, it does bring a bit more body to the table. So if you're in the market for something a little heavier in the cup, but still delivering the fruit, this is the coffee for you! Both this coffee and the Costa Rica Termico have been real treats for our roasting team when it comes to routinely sampling the goods. 

This micro-lot was sourced from small producers from the rural areas of Villamaria, Chinchina and Manizales, all in Caldas department - and personally processed Juan Felipe Aristizábal at his wet mill.

At his wet mill, Juan Felipe Aristizabal is known as the "alquimist". He personally oversees the processing of all high-quality cherries. In this process, growers delivered ripe red cherries to the mill of Aristizabal. The cherries were then sorted for quality and washed so that floaters could be removed. From there the cherries were moved to sealed tanks for the maceration process. In this lot, the cherries were left in the tank to ferment for 24 hours while highly nuanced and complex flavors developed. Afterwards, the cherries were moved to raised beds in solar dryers where they were turned 4 - 6 times per day to ensure the coffee to dried evenly in the mucilage and the skin.
