About This Coffee

At a recent cupping (tasting) of fresh crop Colombian coffees, this lot really stood out and impressed us with its complexity of flavour and balance.

Produced by Camila Gomez and her family. For this microlot, cherries were exposed to a dry anaerobic fermentation of 28 hours (this fermentation is performed inside the same bags used to pick the coffee). It is then pulped and shade-dried on parabolic beds to the ideal moisture content.

Camila Gomez is 38 years old and is a single mother with two kids (10 and 12 years old). She took over her mother’s farm after she passed away 10 years ago. Camila’s mother used to grow only Caturra due to its high yield but Camila decided to change all of the Caturra trees to Variedad Colombia and Castillo for better resistance to leaf rust. These days Camila has 4,000 Castillo trees and 8,000 Variedad Colombia trees at her farm. This microlot is 100% Variedad Colombia. This variety was developed by the Colombian coffee federation for its resistance to leaf rust disease.

This lot was sourced for us by our friends at Cofinet.
