La Florencia. It's become a familiar name around the roastery. For the fourth year in a row we have had the pleasure of sourcing this incredible farm. It's now back on the shelves again from farmer Isaura. Find florals in the aroma alongside sweet tasting notes of Nectarine, Hazelnut & Chocolate Biscuits in the cup.
La Florencia, sister farm of Santo Tomás and San Jacinto were founded by Antonio Martínez, an experienced farmer, who grew both Bourbon, Caturra and Typica varieties. After he passed away there was no known process and his daughter, Isaura, with no prior experience in coffee farming had to find her feet and develop her own approach; her persistence in the craft has paid off significantly as she is now producing high-quality specialty coffee, with noticeable progression in quality year-on-year. This is the first year we have bought a larger lot from her, along side with another crop of the micro lot we bought this 100 bag lot of excellent quality blend of Bourbon & Caturra. This type of buying really helps support the farmer by purchasing nearly all of their production this year, providing funds and support so they can continue their pursuit of fantastic growing and practices.
Here's to the women in coffee!
This microlot comes from Inga forest at the top of La Florencia farm. After hand-picking the ripest cherries they’re brought to the on-farm washing station. Post-pulping they are fermented for 13 hours and washed in channels. The coffee beans are then separated by density and slowly dried on concrete patios over 18 days.
Variety: Bourbon, Caturra
