Huila is a province in southwestern Colombia that lies between the Eastern and Central mountain ranges. The Magdalena river winds its way through the entire region, which is also home to Colombia’s second highest peak: the Nevado del Huila volcano. With an average temperature of 65°F year-round and fertile soil that also contains a variety of rich mineral resources, Huila boasts a vibrant agricultural industry.
Bertulfo does 5 days pre-dry (shade drying, straight after washing), then 15-30 dry to dry thereafter, until he knows the moisture level is around 11%. His drying racks have plastic under the drying screens. They check the drying coffee for bora / broca and the bad coffees fall through to the plastics collection, which they then sell as pesa (over grade coffee, or C Grade).
This Colombian coffee is clean & sweet. With plum & figs fruitiness, pair with delightful candied fruit sweetness. A great pick to start your day.
