This coffee is from a new parcel Jose bought last August, just 3-4 min away from his family farm where he lives, along with his parents and 2 brothers.
Jose’s family has always worked with coffee, so when he inherited the land of his family farm he inherited his family tradition as well as the land they worked.
Jose is a new member of the Los Guacheros group of producers, which has given him access to us as a buyer, which is great news for us as his coffee is fantastic! It’s also great news for him as it means he no longer has to sell to local markets, so he can be paid better and support his family
Los Guacharos is a group of independent, quality-focused small producers in Bruselas, Southern Huila (close to Pitalito). The group is collectively converting to organic agriculture, making their own fertilizers and fungicides, installing complex water filtration systems that use gravity, stones and sand to remove all mucilage residues from wastewater to not contaminate water systems.
Cherries are picked as ripe as can be, depulped the same day, fermented until they reach their ideal washing point for maximum sweetness, and fully washed. Each producer in the group has a different regiment, but many dry on raised bets or drying patios, where the coffee is covered with shade cloths. Parchment coffee is stored in grain pro bags at home to ensure that humidity is stable at around 11%.
Good agriculture and processing truly does result in good coffee, and this lot from Jose is further proof of that.
