This lot comes from the farm “La Esperanza” in the region of Cundinamarca, about an hour and a half outside Bogota. Processed in partnership with La Palma y El Tucan’s “Neighbors and Crops” program, this coffee takes advantage of the multiple benefits they have to offer (including access to organic fertilizer and expert coffee picking teams).  This particular lot of Castillo variety was processed using their unique Bio-Innovation process… The wizards at La Palma first capture and reproduce microorganisms found in their farm’s beautiful forests, to create their own fermentation substrate (think a starter, like for sourdough bread or beer). Then, they mix this substrate with perfectly ripened coffee cherries in a clay pot for 100 hours. The coffee is then rinsed and dried on raised beds. The extended fermentation and biome unique to their farm creates a coffee that is vibrant, exotic and truly one-of-a-kind.
