Finca Tamana 158,-
This lot is from the May-July 2017 harvest, which in our opinion is the best harvest Elias has had so far at the farm. Of course the increase of quality is a result of Elias' dedication to improving the quality of his farm and his coffee but it is also a result of the prolonged ripening times of the coffee cherries during this harvest due to the cool and cloudy weather at the beginning of the harvest. You can expect this coffee to have more intensity and a fruitier flavour than previous harvests. A big improvement compared to the 2016 crop which was affected by drought and made the coffee a tad nutty and less intense.
Herbal, red berries & brown sugar.
El Pital, Huila, Colombia
1650 - 1750 masl. In full sun.
The coffee is selectively hand picked by hired pickers under supervision of Elias. Cherries are hand sorted before they are processed to make sure only ripe cherries are processed together. After depulping the parchment coffee is rinsed in clean water. Then the water is drained and the parchment is fermented for 14 to 16 hours. After fermentation the coffee is washed in clean water that is changed 4 times. All ﬂoaters are removed during the washing. The parchment is soaked for 24 hours in clean water before it is dried in parabolic dryers under shade from 25 - 35 days.
