Colombia Edilberto Torres

Premium Specialty coffee
(Exclusively in 125g bags)

Produced by Edilberto Torres and his son at Finca La Granja. Caturron cherries turn a dark purple colour when ripe. Pickers who are selected to harvest this lot must distinguish between ripe and unripe for this particular variety. After being picked, this lot was exposed to anaerobic fermentation for 25 hours in ceramic tanks. Afterwards, it is pulped, washed, and dried in parabolic dryers to the ideal moisture content. Edilberto Torres purchased his farm seven years ago and decided to plant Caturron and Castillo due to the high yield and resistance to leaf rust of both varieties. Until only a few months ago, Edilberto produced only commercial coffee. This is the first lot Edilberto managed to sell into the specialty coffee market following Cofinet's guidance.
This micro-lot is 100% Caturron. This variety is a rare mutation of Caturra first discovered in Acevedo, Huila. Growers started planting Caturron for its resistance to leaf rust and high yield. It wasn't until 2016 that Cofinet, with the help of local producers, identified the exotic cup profile of this variety.
