Light roast Colombian coffee, washed process, carbonic maceration. Grown by Jairo Arcila at El Castellon in Quindio, Colombia, this microlot is comprised of 100% Gesha varietal. This rare and highly sought after varietal was brought over from Ethiopia to Panama in 1963, and planted in Colombia in 2005. For this coffee the cherries are picked at peak ripeness, then hand sorted and exposed to a dry anaerobic fermentation (carbonic maceration) for 42 hours before they're washed and dried on shaded raised beds.
Note: This coffee is whole-bean. We feel this is the best option to preserve freshness, flavor, and aroma. If you need your coffee ground, please choose a grind level option and we'll be happy to grind it accordingly.
