ABOUT THE BEAN
Bright tropical fruit and plum notes balanced by the more-ish flavour of rooibos tea. This SL28 micro-lot heralds from Floripondi. This 47 hectare farm (29 of which are planted with coffee) is found at a staggering 1,710 meters above sea level. It has two breathtaking viewpoints: one over the spectacular Andes mountain ranges, and another over the Amboró National Park, which is considered having some of the world’s greatest biodiversity of flora and fauna.
The cherries underwent a 90-hour fermentation with their skin, or ‘cascara’ intact, a process that the producer carefully monitors to ensure lactic acid development. After fermentation, the cherries were washed and dried for seven days. The result is a clean and complex cup with a silky smooth mouthfeel.
