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: Natural/Dry Processed Coffee
The natural process, also known as the dry process, is a back-to-basics approach that stems.
The fruit remains on the bean, and dries undisturbed.
Although it needs less investment, it still requires certain climatic conditions to ensure the drying of the fruit and seed in time.
Over time, the natural process has become considered a lower-quality method that can lead to inconsistent flavors.
This inconsistency is often the result of unripe fruit drying and turning brown alongside ripe fruits.
However, there are many who believe this process actually has the potential to create the most flavourful coffees – and that a comeback is just around the corner.
If consistency is achieved, then many argue that natural coffees can match washed coffees for clarity, and also provide some more interesting notes and characteristics as well.
Ben of Gold Mountain Coffee Growers told me that a nicely picked and processed natural coffee can bring out incredible cupping notes, and offer consumers amazing sweet flavours – “Some of our naturals end up tasting more like a tropical fruit salad or fruit compote than coffee.”
