A small, yet impressive lot grown by farmer Julio Cesar Roa Montiel on his farm Finca Las Hermosas in Pitalito.
The farming land is still in its infancy, acquired only 7 years ago. In this time, Julio has managed to successfully plant and cultivate around 20,000 coffee trees. It is clear that Julio has paid close attention to detail and is evidenced by his ability to produce specialty grade coffee with Colombia and Caturra varieties.
The coffee is hand-picked then sorted by lot, after this it is pulped and dry fermented for 24 hours. After the drying period the coffee is washed in channels and is taken to a parabolic drying system where the beans are dried slowly to allow for full development of the flavours. The beans are measured for moisture content and when they reach appropriate levels the coffee is immediately packed into jute bags.
