This Month's Offerings
Farm: Finca La Esperanza
Producer: James Meléndez
Origin: La Unión, Nariño
Process: Washed, 24hr Fermentation
Notes: Cranberry, White grape, Clementine
We are very excited to welcome a new farm to kickoff October's subscription; Finca La Esperanza. James Meléndez has worked on coffee farms all his life. His dream came true when he acquired his own coffee farm called La Esperanza alongside his wife and children. James has dedicated his coffee career working alongside Cooperativa Coomerciacafe, who have given him great technical support and access to different technological equipment.
Jame’s farm is known for the wide varieties of coffee he produces from rare and exotic varieties such as Geisha to Pink Bourbon to more common varieties such as castillo and colombia. Thanks to his training and experience James has always been at the forefront of the latest advances in the science behind coffee farming and applied his knowledge to maintain his coffee harvest in the optimal conditions.
The La Esperanza farm is a great example for neighboring farms in demonstrating how to conduct sustainable coffee farming. La Cooperativa Coomerciacafe has been a great supporter of James and his family and their work together has seen the production of extremely high quality coffee free from chemical pesticides.
La Esperanza is a washed coffee with a 24 hour fermentation, creating a fresh and bright acidity with notes of sweet cranberry, white grape and a beautifully sweet clementine finish.
Farm: Finca El Trapiche
Producer: Samudio García family
Origin: Sandona, Nariño
Process: Washed, 68hr Fermentation
Notes: Red Currants, Honey, Brown Sugar
Our second coffee is a special lot from our friends at Finca El Trapiche. The Samudio García family are the second generation of coffee growers, with their farm being located in Vereda El Tambillo, Sandona-Nariño.
Don Gerardo and his wife Imelda have three daughters who are continuing on the family farm. Their 1 hectare farm has approximately 4,000 plants, which the family harvest all by hand, ensuring only beans which are fully ripe and without visual defects are harvested. Whilst machine harvesting would be quicker, the attention to detail would be lacking and the quality would drop severely.
This particular lot has been allowed to ripen longer on the tree, has been fermented for an extended period with some fruit remaining on the coffee seed before being fully removed, and dried for an extended time. This has created an incredibly sweet cup, with notes of ripe red fruits, floral honey, and rich brown sugar.
