Hernan Prieto and his brother Eugenio co-own Finca Villa Clabelina, a coffee farm with 105,000 Caturra and Colombia trees, spread out over 22 hectares of the hillside in Ciudad Bolivar, Antioquia region of Colombia, at 1800m asl. This lot, #8, is 100% variedad Colombia.
The Villa Clabelina farm was planted with coffee more than fifty years ago. They are a part of the Coffee Growers Association, a group of farmers working together to improve their production protocols and methods to produce high-standard quality coffee, working with fair prices and environmentally sustainable practices.
The group was started by Juan Saldarriaga, who has been conducting experimental processing at his family's farms to produce improved and differentiated products. He has been sharing the skills he has developed with the group members. Sustainability is one of the main objectives, as they work to guarantee a product with high-quality standards while conserving the environment.
All their coffee is collected manually. This is an extended fermentation natural coffee, where the cherries have been fermented for 72 hours before the coffee was dried.
They have been working with Juan Saldarriaga to improve their processing and processing facilities, building new and improved rooms for drying coffee in a controlled manner. This allowed them also to process honey and natural coffees beyond Colombia's famous washed lots.
We love this lot for its sweet, berry-forward taste.
In the cup: mature forest berries, red fruits, plum, with a muscovado sugar aftertaste. Well-balanced with a syrupy mouthfeel.
Minimum resting period: 10 days from the roast date for espresso roast, 7 days for filter roast.
