This traceable community blend combines the effect of terroir, variety, and unique processing character from the efforts of 15 producers committed to following a specific processing protocol with the Caturra variety. Using their own micro-mill, each producer carefully harvested the caturra cherries, depulped and then fermented for up to 220 hours in aerator tanks designed to promote a lactic bacteria environment during the fermentation. After this prolonged process of fermenting, the coffee was washed and then gently dried on raised beds. The harmony between these producers in post-harvest practices was impressively precise to achieve such a clean and consistent blend. An export company called Mastercol provides crucial cupping evaluations to ensure the resulting harmony and character, as well as logistical support for things like warehousing and milling the coffee before export to the international market, which means better income reaches producers so they can reinvest in their farms and strengthen their families’ livelihoods.
