It is surrounded by hills and pine forests, high in the mountains with red, clay soil. 87 farms contributed to this community lot, most farms are between 2-3 hectares.
Process: Washed then sun dried & solar dryers. Solar dryers are used sometimes when it is very difficult to transport coffee to drying stations because of the rainy season. Using these dryers allow coffee to uniformly dry and maintain a high quality.
Roast Level: Medium & Dark
- Medium Roast:Smooth, well-rounded body with apple-like acidity, cherry notes and subtle warm spice aroma
- Dark Roast: Heavy-bodied with creamy mouthfeel of chocolate, walnut and subtle warm spice aroma
Cupping Notes: Dark Roast 2/2020 : Tasted sample two days from roast date. You can tell from the aroma it is heavy-bodied with chocolate notes. Although a dark roast, this was smooth with prominent chocolate and walnut. No bitter aftertaste, would be a great espresso option
