JESÚS MENDINUETA - Micro Lot
Notes: Intense fruit and florals, tamarind mixed with rosehip and hibiscus tea, crisp green apple finish. Juicy body and a long sweet aftertaste
Jesus and his wife Erika began growing coffee three years ago in search of a better lifestyle. Their farm, Bella Vista is located at 1,360 m.a.s.l in La Paz village in the municipality of Cienaga, Magdalena.
Jesus inherited the Bella Vista from his parents, two traditional coffee growers from the region. Now he and his wife manage everything on the farm. They hired 6 workers to help them with the handpicking and cleaning of the farm during the harvest season. The main harvest is in November, December, and January.
Processing Method: Natural
The Natural Process begins with a pre-fermentation stage of 24 hours at the receival station. From here, the cherries will be moved to the drying stage; coffee will be placed in African-style raised beds for over 25 days and will be racked and rotated every 4 hours. Due to the levels of sugar and moisture, the first days will be crucial to avoid microbial activity prolongation. Finally, parchment coffee will pass through our dry milling and hand sorting stage.
