Cherries for this lot are picked only when they turn a dark purple colour. They are then exposed to a dry fermentation of 17 hours before being pulped. This fermentation takes place inside hessian bags below 18 degrees c. The coffee is then dried on parabolic dryers to 10% moisture content.
Luis Anibal Calderon has been growing coffee for over 20 years but only sold his first specialty lot in 2013. These days he grows 26 different varieties including Pink Bourbon, Wush Wush, Tabi, Striped Bourbon, Maragogype, Java, Yellow Bourbon, Laurinha, Typica, Papayo, and more.
This microlot is 100% Caturron. This variety is a rare mutation of Caturra first discovered in Acevedo, Huila. Growers started planting Caturron for is resistance to lead rust and high yield. It wasnt until 2016 that that Cofinet, with the help of local producers, identified the exotic cup profile of the variety.
Best Consumed: 5-20 days post-roast date
This coffee is great for filter brew methods. Our favorites are Kalita Wave, Aeropress or Clever Dripper. For filter, we recommend 6g of ground coffee for every 100ml of water at approx 93c. Use your kitchen scales you’ll love it!
