COLOMBIA EL PARAÍSO
This coffee is a geisha variety, growing at 1960 mt above sea level, in the Cauca region, southwest of Colombia. The climate is very humid, with a high incidence of Pacific winds that provide tropical notes to our coffee fruits. These beautiful coffee beans have a very delicate, citric and aromatic profile, thanks to the climate conditions, the altitude, the terroir and the heavy rains. The process begins with the harvest of ripe grape point coffee cherries. The process of cleaning can start: with impurities being washed away, then floating and the selection of optimum fruits occurs. In addition, coffee cherries are disinfected with ozone, to reduce the unwanted microbiological load in the process. Anaerobic fermentation and thermal shock make this coffee unique, with extraordinary aromatic complexity. In the final stage, the coffee is placed in a cool place to stabilize. Afterwards, coffee beans are selected and threshed according to the quality standards.
