Gallego Microlot

Finca La Conejera, El Sendero, Santa Rosita and Tamesis

This is a micro-lot. The coffee is sourced from four different farms located in the Antioquia region between 1500 masl and 1800 masl. 

We know the origin of our coffee and we work with the single-estate farmers Gregorio, Guillermo, Marco and Arturo in order to keep the quality of this micro-lot.

A perfect cup of coffee begins with the coffee crops. We take care of every stage-from when the farmers plant the seeds until you get your green beans.  We recognize that the best quality comes from hard work and we love developing coffee profiles for our roaster partners.

The farmers have a very strict cherry selection criteria. After screening, only the ripe cherries are allowed into the de-pulping machine. The fermentation process period takes between 28 to 32 hours after depulping. After fermentation, the coffee is washed and sun dried on patios and drying beds until 11% of humidity, then a coffee sample is taken to the Lab.

Parchment coffee is packaged in grain pro bags and stored in the farms until lab results are available and the price is agreed
