This coffee is from a farm and producer that are a member of Coocentral (Cooperative in Central Huila). Coocentral is doing a smallholder project in cooperation with Nordic Approach to improve the quality of the coffee and livelihoods of the producers. They are investing in technical assistance, follow up and training with the growers. There are about 70 farmers currently part of the project, and this can be increased.
Coffees are picked in 3-4 passes, the first and last pass is of lower quality, and the second and third will be considered as the best, with more ripe cherries and uniform quality. This parchment harvested in the second and third passes. The picked coffees then proccssed with traditional washed process, pulped and fermented. The coffees are stirred in tanks or small channels before removing the floaters. For the ones without channels it’s common to wash the coffees in the fermentation tank and skim off the floaters before it goes to the drying. The coffees are sun dried in parabolic dryers that almost works as green houses. Coffees are dried down to below 11% in 10-18 days with good ventilatiom facilities to maintain the coffee consistency.
Intense with mandarin flavour, long lingering oolong tea finish and with a hint of almond note. Please enjoy!
