This Red Colombia lot from Finca Morelia in Colombia has been specially processed: ‘red-honey-processed’ coffee involves placing the coffee beans in the sun to dry, with the mucilage surrounding them after the pulping process. The fine jelly that surrounds them then becomes sticky and hard, giving the beans their softness during the drying process. Due to the influence of the mucilage, the beans take on a red color.
This filter coffee will simply blow your mind in terms of taste, because this combination of notes does not come along every day!
The slightly tart blackberry is rounded off by the note of sweet ripe plum, and complimented by the slightly nutty touch of pistachio.
Finca La Morelia is the result of a 50-year family tradition of coffee production that has maintained high-quality standards. Don Gilberto Torres and his wife, Cecilia Valencia, acquired their land in Armenia with intent to produce some of Colombia’s highest quality coffees. Today, their son, Don Eduard Fabian Torres has grown their operations to produce high-quality micro-lots all while exceeding industry standards of environmental (shade-grown coffee) and social sustainability. With these standards, Finca La Morelia is a certified Cafe de Colombia (extremely difficult certification to achieve) for its consistent high-quality and is a certified Protection Denomination of Origin for their environmental care. For the Torres family, La Morelia means the evolution of a process that returns in each sip the emotion of a universal drink, made from the deep tropics.
