Notes: CANDY BAR DATES GOJI BERRIES

Roast Date: 26 Feb 2024

Region: ACEVEDO, HUILA
Altitude: 1550 MASL
Variety: STRIPED PINK BOURBON
Process: NATURAL ANAEROBIC

A very aromatic natural coffee with notes of chocolate and cherries from the first moment. As it cools down, softer and silkier notes of candy bars, dates and Tempranillo grapes emerge. In the mouth, we enjoy a vinous acidity and a creamy body that reminds us of goji berries.

Miriam Quesada Enciso is a second-generation coffee producer. She inherited Finca El
Guayacan from her ex-husband when they split their land. She has been cultivating coffee on the farm since 2005. Today, Miriam and her current husband, Libardo, manage Finca El Guayacan using a focus on high-quality cultivation and processing.

The volcanic loam soil is nutrient-rich and excellent for growing coffee. In addition to
coffee, Miriam and Libardo also cultivate plantain and yucca. The 'striped bourbon' varietal is a naturally occurring mutation of Bourbon that has light stripes on the cherry
skin. This mutation was discovered in Huila, Colombia.

Miriam and Libardo are improving harvesting methods and ensuring the labourers pick only ripe, red cherries. They’re using incentives like better prices and free meals to entice good workers and reward their efforts.

Once coffee is harvested, they float the cherries and remove any lightweights. The good-quality cherry is then placed in sealed bags and fermented for 4 days. Following fermentation, they deliver the cherry to a separate drying facility where it dries for approximately 15 days. The Cherry is turned frequently to ensure even drying.
