Regular price $21.99 USD
Sale price $21.99 USD Regular price
Tasting Notes: Raspberry, Rose, Shortbread

Nestor and his brother Adrian took over their family farm and made the decision to branch out into specialty coffee. The two brothers have teamed up with Johan Vergara to create the farm “El Diviso”, in the Huila region of Colombia. This young team of three is already making waves in the specialty coffee scene. Together, these three have been able to produce an amazing Typica Mejorado that is sure to have you wanting more. When the coffee is harvested, it is then pulped and left oxidizing with the mucilage for 12 hours. It then underwent submerged fermentation in 28-degree water for 8 hours. To complete the process, the coffee was washed with hot water at 65-70 degrees to create a thermal shock effect. The coffee is dried to a humidity of 11%, which took 18-24 days.

A clean coffee

This was a great and clean cup. Brewing this washed coffee was very fair and forgiving in my experience. Tons of fruit and a great texture with an origami and origami filters.

Somehow nails that shortbread buttery-ness

We all know Nestor Lasso is an incredible producer and this one doesn't fall short. Intense notes of rose with a shortbread undertone. Mouth filling and juicy.
