Farmer: Giovanni Rincon
HASL: 4620 Ft
Origin: Ulloa, Valle del Cauca
Quality Program: 100 % Colombian Coffee
Certified: Fair Trade
Varietals: Castillo and Cenicafé 1.
Due to the richness of its aromas and flavors, we only grow arabica coffee. In order to comply with the Colombian coffee cup profile, and following the indications of the world-renowned Center for Coffee Research (CENICAFE), we grow 2 varieties of coffee, catillo and Cenicafe 1.
These varieties are resistant to diseases such as rust and cherry disease, which reduces the probability of using fungicides in the crop, allowing us to be more environmentally friendly and respectful with the end consumer.
Process: Honey/Pulped Natural Coffee
When done right, honey processed coffee can literally taste like someone has put honey and brown sugar in your cup of coffee – although the name actually comes from how sticky the beans get during processing.
In many ways, this type of coffee is halfway between a washed coffee and a natural process coffee: it’s fruity, but not in as exaggerated a way as some naturals. It often has a more rounded acidity than washed coffees, with intense sweetness and complex mouthfeel.
The honey process is strongly associated with Costa Rica and, in recent years, subcategories have developed: yellow, red, golden, black, and white honey. This reflects the ability this process has to influence the taste and overall profile of a coffee.
It can become a highly scientific process, as the level of mucilage – which influences the sweetness and depth of body of the coffee – is monitored and controlled. Typically, the more mucilage left on the bean, the sweeter the taste.
