The coffee story



Hernando is a third generation coffee farmer who inherited two farms when her father Hernando Arcila passed away 20 years ago. For many years his focus was on producing high yields but since 2020 he enrolled in our single state program in search of producing high quality coffee in volumes. After one year of hard work Hernando is ready to offer the world a high quality coffee with two harvest per year and the intention of searching for a long term relationship. 

The process



This coffee was exposed to a dry aerobic fermentation of 24 hours, later placed inside grain pro bags for 60 hours maintaining temperature below 22 degrees celsius by placing the coffee inside a water tank. Later, placed on raised bed until 18% moisture content is achieved, afterwards coffee is placed inside grain pro bags again for 50 hours and later left to dry below 40 degrees celsius on raised beds until 10.5% moisture content was achieved.

Quality comment
Algrano
Yummy melon and papaya in combination with red ripe fruit. This coffee had a medium coating body accompanied with bright citric-malic acidity and pleasant rummy finish.
