Colombia – Villa Esperanza, Washed (Limited Edition Microlot Coffee)

Most of the amazing coffees we buy from Colombia come from very small farms covering ten hectares and are typically bright, juicy washed coffees. This one is a litte bit different. It’s a lovely juicy washed coffee but the process has brought out a slightly different flavour profile.

This particular coffee was processed as a washed coffee but using controlled and tracked methods. After careful harvesting the coffee was left to rest in bags for 24 hrs at a temperature of 19 degrees C. The coffee was then pulped to remove the outer fruit layer and fermented in water at a temperature of 24 degrees C for 36 hrs. After this fermentation stage the coffee was washed with water at a temp of 40 degrees C and then immediately colled by washing with water at 12 degrees C.

Due to the delicate natural of this coffee we recommend brewing for filter or immersion eg. hario, v60 chemex, aeropress. Example: Dose 15g, water 250g. This coffee will still make wonderful espresso but will require a high standard of equipment and some careful experimentation. We recommend a lower pump pressure (6-7 bar) and a dose of 17 gram to 40 gram yield over about 30 seconds.
