Pablo Guerrero is an incredible coffee producer in Tangua, Nariño, Colombia. His farm, El Obraje, sits at a high elevation surrounded by volcanic mountains which provide mineral nutrients to the soil. The temperature swings wildly during the coffee growing season (from 32°C at noon to 8°C or less at night) - the high humidity means that only a few shade trees are required to maintain ideal production. The coffee tree responds to climate stress (such as dramatic temperature swings) by sending more nutrients to the fruit. These nutrient-dense coffee cherries tend to produce a better final cup of coffee! Pablo Guerrero has hit the sweet spot - just the right amount of climate stress and some exceptional coffee varieties. The Gesha variety grown at Finca El Obraje was brought from Panama in 2011 and has produced truly outstanding results for the last several years.
We are so excited to get our hands on this naturally processed lot of Pablo Guerrero's Gesha. Coffee cherries are selectively picked at peak ripeness and briefly fermented for 20 hours using the bag-held technique. Sorted cherries are then spread across raised beds and dried for roughly 30 days. Each year, the processing techniques are more finely tuned so the coffee keeps getting better; Pablo's commitment to excellence motivates our commitment to "exceptional coffee, kept simple"
We're trying something a little different with this release. Despite this being a very limited lot, we want yall to have the chance to really spend time getting to know this coffee as you brew it for yourselves (something that can be a challenge with our 100g black label releases). We're selling this coffee in our standard, 340g retail bag, but at a price point that reflects the quality and value of the coffee.
On the nose, this coffee shines with the delicate florals of jasmine. Bright raspberries are the first thing we taste, followed by juicy nectarine. The finish is intensely sweet - as a whole, it is truly a joy to experience this coffee.
