Grown by Duvier Horta at Finca El Mirador, this coffee was carefully handpicked in order to select the ripest cherries. The coffee was then pupled and later fermented for 95 hours under water. Finally, the coffee was gently washed and placed on raised beds for 12 days until ideal moisture content was achieved.
Finca El Mirador is located in the municipality of Planadas, in Tolima. Here, Duvier, who grew up in coffee plantations himself, tends to his farm with his wife and three children.
This microlot is 100% Castillo. This varietal was developed in 2005 by the Colombian coffee research institute, CENICAFE, to prevent the spread of La Roya, a fungus that attacks the leaves of coffee trees. It is a cross-fertilisation between Caturra (the male parent) and a hybrid of Timor (the female parent), whose thick leaves enable it to withstand La Roya.
