Producer: Jamison Savage
Farm: Savage Coffees
Altitude: 1500-1900 masl
Harvest: Mid 2020
The quality in this Caturra starts with a meticulous picking practice where only the ripest cherries are harvested with a BRIX reading over 24. After the cherries are harvested they are post selected on a raised African bed designed by Jamison Savage. After several days in direct sunlight the coffee is dropped to the second level bed where it is essentially shade-dried for up to 30 days. This slow, methodical process gives the coffee grain an opportunity to absorb these layered, natural, complex, flavors provided by the fruit.
Temperatures, airflow, and constant agitation of the coffees is critical to the consistent and even drying of the coffees. After the coffees have been dried to 10.5-11% humidity it is placed in grain-pro bags and stored in bodega for up to 90 days. This “reposo” or rest gives the coffee the opportunity to equalize humidity and stabilize all while the coffee continues to absorb the natural sweetness and fruit flavors.
About Jamison and his coffee:
Savage Coffee is a project started by Jamison Savage in Panama. Jamison has positioned himself as one of the most sophisticated coffee producers globally, with his farm Finca Deborah winning prestigious coffee competitions around the globe and now pre-booking his coffees well before the season starts.
This project allows Jamison to increase his scope and purchase from neighbouring producers who don't have the same vision for processing that he sees. Currently working with four estates in Volcan, Jamison is growing the Savage Coffee brand. These are top quality, vibrant and varietal driven coffees.
