in the village of San Agustín, within the municipality of Planadas, in the Tolima department of Colombia.
This lot is fermented in cherry in an anaerobic environment for 32 hours before being depulped and allowed to ferment again in open air in mucilage before being fully washed and sun-dried for 17 days.
In 2010, the son of Jose Elicio and Luz Elida, Victor, began overseeing the operation of the farm, and began renovating the lots and planting exotics. Don Victor also began learning better processing techniques as well as cupping, later earning his Q grader certification.
The Gutierrez family is dedicated to the production of differentiated coffees in the new fermentation and drying protocols that have been developed over the years. They have achieved organic certification with the main objective to contribute to the environment with the conservation of soils, fauna and flora. The farm is cultivated under a semi-shade system, being more friendly with nature.
Great light roasted coffee! I wouldn't go any lighter than this though.

I tried a second roast of it with a much longer development time and didn't care for this roast.
