About The Coffee:This coffee was grown by Nectario Zuñiga at the farm El Altico. This coffee is harvested following strict ripeness criteria, floated and hand-sorted to remove any defects. Cherries were then exposed to 30 hours of underwater fermentation before being pulped. The parchment was then gently washed and then dried in temperature-controlled conditions until ideal moisture content was achieved.

This is a traditional variety in Colombia, and most small-scale coffee farmers use this variety in their parcels. In the late eighteenth century, cultivation spread to the Caribbean, Mexico, and Colombia. Until the 1940s, the majority of coffee plantations in South and Central America were planted with Typica.
