Colombia El Progreso

from 15.50

Region: Cauca                           

Farm: El Progreso

Producer: Julian Palomino

Variety: Castillo

Altitude:  2000 m

Processing:  Washed

Harvest: June - August 2018

Julian Palomino in Totoro, Cauca, owns the 5-hectare farm El Progreso, where he has 20,000 Castillo trees planted on 4 out of his 5 hectares. After harvesting the coffee, he depulps either the same day or the day after (depending on the quantity), and uses a zaranda tool to sort out the damaged seeds. the coffee is then fermented dry for 20–24 hours, a duration of time that Julian determined by using a tool called a Fermaestro, which gives a visual indication to the producer about the state of the mucilage during fermentation. The coffee is then washed three or four times and placed in a parabolic dryer for 12–15 days.
