Flavour

The high altitude of the region contributes to the coffee's pronounced citric acidity. The extended fermentation process and cherry maceration enhance the cup's fruited notes, creating a harmonious flavor profile.

The producers

 

Luz, Roger, and their relatives collectively manage the coffee farms in the area. While each family member owns their own land, Roger oversees the picking, processing, and drying of the coffee. Cherries are meticulously picked by hand when fully ripe to ensure optimal flavour. The harvested cherries are then placed in bags for an overnight pre-fermentation process. After pre-fermentation, the cherries undergo depulping and are then fermented for 24 to 36 hours. Finally, the coffee is carefully dried in a ventilated greenhouse, on a wooden patio lined with plastic.
