The coffee is a Sudan Rume varietal that Café Granja grows at their Las Margaritas farm in Cauca Valley, Colombia. Las Margaritas is a 33,8 hectare farm located in Cauca Valley, in the Caicedonia department of West Colombia. Coffees of this farm grow on 14 separate lots in 1.570-1.850 meters above sea level. This Sudan Rume was first hand-picked carefully as part of the peak harvest so that all cherries had ripened as uniformly as possible. After picking, the cherries are fermented with the cherry for 19-22 hours. After that, they’re pulped without using water and fermented with mucilage for another 35 hours. When the fermentation process is done, the coffee is dried slowly on solar driers for 28 days and left in storage for at least 3 months to stabilize it and reduce astringency. Fragrance and aroma: Cardamom, Cacao, and Sweet Spices Flavor and aftertaste: Cardamom, Stone Fruits, Honey like sweetness with creamy mouthfeel and long sweet finish of vanilla.
