This coffee is grown by Rafael Amaya at finca La Virgina located in a southern municipality of Huila, Colombia. This microlot is 100% caturra, a variety that originated in Brazil and a natural mutation of red bourbon. Caturra is a hearty, a high producing variety that is more resistant to disease than bourbon. This lot was carefully hand-picked in order to use only the ripest cherry. The cherries were exposed to a dry anaerobic fermentation for 200 hours inside Grainpro bags. During this fermentation, CO2 was added to the sealed bags. Later, the cherries were then placed on raised beds to dry.
