This is our Caturra offering from Pablo Andres Guerrero of Hacienda El Obraje.
Originally a bean and wheat farmer, Sr. Guerrero established his coffee farm in Nariño in 1999, pioneering the specialty coffee industry in the region.
Today the farm is testing areas of different species and densities of shade plants. They have planted several different, highly sought after varieties of coffee as well as being engaged in ongoing experiments with wet milling, fermentation, and drying.
This Caturra lot has gone through what Sr. Guerrero calls the “Super Cherry” process. Although it is considered a Washed process coffee, it has been subjected to a longer fermentation before drying to imbue a deeper flavor and sweetness in the bean. We believe this process has paid off and are delighted with the results.
This light-medium roasted coffee features an aroma of toffee and cherries. When brewed it has a note of raspberry with a smooth body, semi-sweet chocolate sweetness, and clementine acidity. The finish is delicate, with a note of roasted almond.
