Finca La Soledad
Our first coffee of the month comes from second generation coffee farmer Albeiro Solarte Muñoz. He brings us this beautiful lot from his two hectare coffee farm, La Soledad. A true product of the family's hard work; Alberio’s wife and four children live out the coffee culture every day, working the lands of the farm.
We are delighted to offer this lot with amazing aromatic aniseed notes, mandarin, sweet brown sugar, and cinnamon. Expect a complex aromatic cup, with bright acidity, medium body, and a sweet aftertaste.
This coffee has undergone extended fermentation time, spending 66 hours fermenting in sacks with the cherry still on, pushing naturally occurring sugars into the green bean and has pathed the way for the complex aniseed and cinnamon notes. Once the cherry has been removed, it has undergone a further 30 hours in a washed fermentation tank which brightens and cleans up the resulting cup to allow for more transparency in flavour.
Altitude: 1750 masl
Fermentation Time: 66 hours in sacks, 30 hours in tank
Process: Washed - Long Fermentation
Tasting Notes: Aniseed, mandarin, brown sugar, cinnamon.
Finca La Guadua
Our second coffee of the month is a homage to our roots. Fidela Coffee Roasters’ own coffee journey began with this amazing couple, Don Luis Botina and his wife, Sereida Portilla. They 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.
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 Guadua. We are proudly presenting this coffee to you for the second year in a row.
This lot has been fully washed to produce a clean cup, full of flavour. It has also been fermented for 30 hours. Fermentation works to refine the natural sweetness, acidity and complexity. Together, these two processes have created a beautifully complex coffee that we know you’ll love.
Altitude: 1800 masl
Variety: Colombia / Castillo
Fermentation Time: 30 hours in tank
Tasting Notes: Red Berries, Caramel and Cocoa
