SINGLE ORIGIN FILTER COFFEE DESCRIPTION
This coffee was sourced through our Colombian green bean partners, Cofinet. We’ve worked with them for over five years now, and respect their commitment to improving the quality of Colombian coffees. They actively seek out great producers, and then share their skills and knowledge to help these producers further improve their coffees, leading to better outcomes across the board.
Auricel Conde from Finca La Primavera participated in Cofinet’s internship program in 2018 and has been producing incredible coffees since. We’re proud to feature two of Auricel’s delicious coffees. They are the same Castillo varietal processed two different ways - honey and washed. Getting to taste these side by side provides a great insight into the ways that processing affects the flavour in the cup.
Washing coffee cherries results in a super clean flavour profile. First, the skin and majority of the fruit (mucilage) is mechanically removed. To remove the remaining mucilage, the beans are placed into fermentation tanks, usually for 24-48 hours. This process retains the beans’ natural crisp acidity.
The washed process is able to highlight the true character of a single origin bean like no other process – and is the reason for the immense popularity of washed coffee.
