Farm: Naranjo Agrio
Producer: Luis A. Botina
Origin: Sandoná, Nariño
Varietal: Cenicafe 1
Process: Washed Long fermentation 72 hrs
Notes: Red fruits, apple, cherry, blueberry
We are very excited to welcome a new farm to kickoff October's subscription; Naranjo Agrio.
Both Don Luis Botina and his wife, Sereida Portilla have both been coffee farming for over twenty-eight years. Their farm is in the small village of Tambillo, close to the town Sandona in the province of Nariño, Colombia.
Don Luis was the local schoolteacher in Tambillo and, during his career, he started to buy micro-lots of coffee. Over time, he has become an expert in coffee farming and processing. This has gained him recognition from the Colombian Coffee Federation for his dedication to farming.
Continuing on journey of innvoation, the Cenicafe 1 varietal is one of Colombia’s newest coffee varietals. After 20 years of research it was launched in 2017, a hybrid of Caturra and Timor Hybrid 1343. A high yielding crop, the hope of Cenicafe 1 is a increased production for farmers, which in turn is essential for higher profitability of coffee farmers.
Don Luis has since retired from teaching and now dedicates his time to farming. La Finca El Naranjo Agrio has 3.5 hectares separated into two micro-lots, one of which is Naranjo Agrio.

A fully washed coffee, it has had an extended fermentation time allowing for a more complex cup. You can expect a fruit forward cup with notes of ripe red berries, cherry, blueberries and crisp notes of green apple.
SAN ISIDRO - SUPREMO
Farm: Finca San Isidro
Producer: Don Pedro
Origin: Sandona, Nariño
Process: Washed, 48hr Fermentation
Notes: Pineapple, honey, brown sugar and red grape
Our second coffee is a special lot from our friends at Finca San Isidro. Located in the Nariño region, right at the foot of the Galeras volcano, this farm has the benefit of sitting in extremely nutrient rich soils. This directly impacts the quality of the coffee being produced at the San Isidro farm.
Don Pedro inherited the farm from his father, and has spent years planting and growing rare and unique coffee varietals such as Geisha, Pink and Yellow Bourbon (alongside more typically found varietals). As a coffee lover, he also enjoys experimenting with new processes of prolonged fermentation, lactic fermentation, honey and natural processing methods.
As a pioneer of coffee farming, Don Pedro has also implemented new sustainable farming techniques. Semi-shade growing through the planting of orange and banana trees, it has created a diverse and sustainable ecosystem.

This coffee is harvested by hand to monitor the coffee cherry quality more closely, mechanically pulped with an extended in tank fermentation time of 48 hours.
Expect notes of juicy peach, floral honey, delicate spices, and bright citrus in a complex, but satisfying cup.
