We are thrilled to offer another rare cultivar lot (purple caturra) from Rodrigo Sanchez. We recently offered the pink bourbon from Rodrigo's farm, Monte Blanco, and now we're excited to get our hands on this purple caturra!
The purple caturra is actually a genetic mutation from the more common red caturra. But purple doesn't just refer to the color of the fruit when ripe (deep purple) it also refers to the color of the new leaves. After discovering the mutation on his farm El Progresso, Rodrigo planted an entire lot full of the mutation on his other farm Monte Blanco. Now we have the pleasure of offering you this special coffee.
What makes this coffee even more special is how Rodgrigo processed it: using very cold water to ferment the fruit off the seeds. The colder water slows the fermentation time which if done right leads to a fruiter cup while avoiding the less desirable fruit notes that come from over-fermentation. Please enjoy!
