Roasts on , ships on
The Lagunas de Narino lot is back! the 2020 crop is now available. The tasting notes of this new crop are slightly different from the previous one, more on the chocolaty side. Worth trying ;-)
Cafè Graja La Esperanza, famous for producing high-quality specialty microlots in the Nariño area, has promoted an association of twenty coffee farmers, including Granja themselves, in the area of Buesaco. They focus their production on fair trade practices and, thanks to the type of production land and the microclimate, on the quality of the products.
The cherries of the lot Lagunas de Nariño have been collected from such farms. Cafè Granja la Esperanza actively coordinated the farmers to obtain a superior cup profile through proper producing techniques and post-harvesting approaches.
This lot has been prepared as fully washed. After the hand-picking, the cherries have been firstly "dry fermented": after being pulped, the cherries were placed into soaking tanks without water for 16 and 18 hours. After fermentation, the beans were completely washed to remove the mucilage. Finally, the coffee was sun-dried on raised beds and stirred several times during the day to achieve uniform drying.
The coffee has notes of milk chocolate, almond, vanilla, pink grapefruit. Very balanced, with good body, it is available for both, espresso and filter extractions, roasted with a profile crafted to heighten the characteristics of this great lot.
We suggest a minimum resting period of 10 days from the roast date for the espresso roast, and the following recipe to start experimenting:
Minimum resting period: 10 days from roast date for espresso roast, 5 days for filter roast.
