More about this coffee:
The Bayter Family farm is situated within the department of Tolima. It’s called El Vergel, meaning The Orchard in English. The soils are rich and nutrient, partially due to the location on an inactive volcano called Black Mountain. It’s a larger scale farm for Colombian standards, with a large focus placed on exotic varieties and new-age processing techniques. The primary goal for Shady and his family is to find distinction through their cup quality while also collaborating and supporting producers in their region. This lot has been sourced through Cofinet, a Colombian exporting company with an aligned vision to Shady. Great lengths and investments are taken to practice sustainable agriculture and to impact their environment at an absolute minimum.
This Java lot shows an exotic flavour profile. It underwent a whole cherry, Carbonic Maceration which extended approximately 48 hours in a sealed, cool temperature environment. This processing technique drives a unique style of fermentation that elevates a complex acidity to be the defining feature in the cup. Following this processing technique, the coffee is dried slowly on raised beds for approximately 15 days.
