Colombia Chorro Alto Washed

Smooth and creamy like chocolate and nougat paste with hints of dried sweet ripe fruits. Nice to match with pastries.

Roasted light based on convection and moderate heat application with world class skill and care. Moderate roast, high front up heat that subsides and a sensational aroma of chocolate follows us through to the first crack and we swiftly afterwards finish the roast. 

- Overview -

Particular to where coffee from Nariño originates favor a higher sugar content which leads to the development of sweet and acidic coffee.

Mercedes is 42 years old and she lives in her farm with her 2 daughters. She is the step daughter of Luciano Delgado and she inherited the farm from Luciano. She lives at the farm where she meticulously grows grows and takes care of the coffee trees. The farm covers 3 hectare, all planted with coffee.

Agroclimatic factors and soils in the Nariño coffee region are made up mainly of volcanic ash in different stages of evolution. As is the case with grapes and wine, the low temperatures ensure that the coffee plants in Nariño will have a longer period of development, filling, and ripening of the coffee cherry.
The coffee is hand picked, de-pulped and web fermented for 12-14 hour to be later dried on raised beds for 10 days.

The harvest is very limited and we fully support the farm by buying the complete harvest. Pre-shipping, the shipping port warehouse was unfortunately robbed and we lost two-thirds of the harvest. Arranged by our dear friend Juliana Bravo Bedoya with family.
