This delicious washed process coffee is picked and hand sorted by Producer Heider Estrella and his family at Finca La Buesaco in Colombia's Nariño region.
Nariño's unique climate conditions contribute to the special, sparkling quality of the coffees there. The dramatic slopes and valleys that comprise the landscape have a direct effect on the temperature modulation that creates these high-acidity, super sweet coffees; warm, humid air collects in the lowlands during the day and creeps up the mountainsides at night, a combination that allows coffee to thrive at much higher altitudes than most of the rest of the country.
For this microlot, cherries were placed into water tanks for 50 hours, afterwards pulped washed and left to dry on raised beds until ideal moisture content was achieved.
