The coffee story

Tabi means "good" in a native Colombian tribe's language. Once you try this delicious coffee you will agree with us that "good" falls short. 
This varietal was introduced by CENICAFE, Colombia's Coffee Research Center in 2002, with the aim of combining the delicious cup qualities of Typica and Bourbon with disease resistance and productivity. 
Tabi is tall, its delicious coffee cherries come in red and yellow, and it feels totally at home at La Pradera, where our Tabi lots have been growing and producing exceptionally well. 
Trinidad is Oscar and Hector's mother, coffee producer who loves to sell her coffee, and when she wants an afternoon treat, she comes to the Lab for this one, her favorite coffee. 

The process

The perfectly ripe cherries are harvested by hand by our expert team. Cherries then enter a classifier that selects the cherries by size, and from there they pass into an optical classifier that further selects cherries by the perfect ripeness color. The selected cherries by size and color then start their controlled fermentation period of anaerobic fermentation for 36 hours. Then the cherries are pulped and the next period of anaerobic fermentation in mucilage begins for a 60 hour period. When the second fermentation period is completed, the coffee is lightly rinsed and placed in a special fiber sack and they are hung to allow excess mucilage to "drip" out of the sacks. The coffee then is placed in the pre-drying deck for a period of 20 hours to begin its dehydration phase. When it reaches 20% humidity it is then placed in raised bed for its period of slow, natural drying until it reaches 11% humidity.

La Pradera is a family-owned organic estate farm in Aratoca, Santander. Four generations of the Daza Bautistas have been directly involved in the production, processing and export of exceptional, organic, specialty coffee. In the early 1970’s Mr. Héctor Daza began the transformation of the family farm into a coffee paradise, by planting diverse timber and fruit trees, creating a beautiful shade canopy for the different varieties of coffee he planted. This was the starting point of a lifelong commitment to environmental practices at La Pradera. The 1980’s were a challenging period, with low market prices and adverse climate conditions. I, Oscar Daza, third generation, assumed the leadership of La Pradera, with a vision to produce extraordinary specialty coffees, certified Rainforest Alliance, Birdfriendly and Organic for world markets.

Quality comment
Algrano
Elegant and gentle, but still very distinct in flavours. Had a milky/yogurthy touch together with combination of spices, mostly nutmeg and coriander seed, also floral, with notes of orange blossom and red ripe fruit. Even with this complexity, still very down to earth, fulfilling but not challenging to drink. Well balanced with medium multi layered acidity (lactic and citric) and medium almost tea like body.
