Harvest: JUNE 2021 Region: TOLIMA Altitude: 1800-1950 MASL Variety: TYPICA FSL Process: WASHED KENYA
This year will be the fourth with a lot from Finca San Luis. Omar Arango has been in charge of managing this farm for 25 years; his mother, Irma Tinoco, is the owner and left Omar the reins of the future of this land. The Typica variety is, without a doubt, our favourite and one of the most genetically and culturally important varieties when it comes to Arabica coffee, very susceptible to diseases and rust but with a very high cup quality. Omar has achieved that almost all of his farm grows this variety with the help of an agroforestry system, replicating the cultures of Ethiopia, leading the farm to be 100% organic.
The coffee cherries were picked at their optimum point of ripeness for this particular lot, followed by a 24-hour anaerobic cherry fermentation in GrainPro bags. Then, the coffee was pulped. Afterwards, the coffee is dried in the sun with a bit of mucilage for 12-15 days in African level beds inside a canopy until 15% of humidity, to finally dry mechanically in silos until reaching 11% of moisture.
