NOTES | ORCHID, LYCHEE, JUICY PEAR
Every harvest the coffees from "El Paraiso" are some of the most anticipated by our staff and those in the know about this project's flavor packed coffees. This years Red Plum is the most balanced and nuanced we have ever tasted. This coffee has a complex fruit character and a creamy texture followed by flowers, red fruit, and a dynamic acidity. These coffees are special and we are happy to share them with you.
El Paraiso Farm is located in the municipality of Piendamó, with a mild-humid climate at 1,930 meters above sea level, focused on specialty coffees.
Mr Diego Bermudez, owner of Finca El Paraiso, founded, with his family, the company INDESTEC focused on producing an innovative technology for coffee
drying named ECO-Enigma. This machine allows them to fully control the
drying process which is critical in their production of specialty coffee with
standardized times and temperature. With his company, Mr Diego and his
family are building an inclusive social program, allowing their neighbors to
process their coffee with the infrastructure and know how of controlled
fermentation process. This will help their neighbors receive better prices for their coffee.
This coffee is a precisely controlled Anaerobic Process with every variable documented and rigorously maintained. It goes through 28 hours cool whole cherry anaerobic fermentation, before pulping and another 80 hours of anaerobic fermentation in mucilage, producing a distinct and interesting cup. We are excited to see what else comes out of this Santuario Project.
