Regular price $22.50 Sale

Notes of rose water, candy-like, boysenberry.

Los Guacharos are a group of independent, quality-focused small producers in Bruselas, Southern Huila. The group is in the process of converting to organic agriculture, by using such practices as making their own fertilizers and fungicides, installing complex water filtration systems that use gravity, stones and sand to remove all mucilage residues from waste water to not contaminate the community water system.

This lot is made up of pink bourbon lots from three individual producers - Alirio Muñoz, Ildefonso Córdoba, and Viviana Realpe. We had purchased Viviana's individual lot earlier in 2022 and were super impressed. Each producer has a slightly different processing method, but all of them pick cherries as ripe as can be, depulp them, ferment until it has reached its ideal washing point for maximum sweetness, and then fully wash the parchment. Each producer has a different regiment, but many dry on raised bets or drying patios, where the coffee is covered with shade cloths. The coffee is then stored in grainpro bags to keep it stable. 

This coffee was sourced by our friends at Shared Source. Michelle & Andrew, with their staff, do an excellent job with providing pricing transparency and develop lifelong relationships with their farming partners, which is why we love to work with them.
