Our second Natural from Huila has arrived. Most coffees are still underway, so we selected some really nice filter from Colombia for you. Producers working with Inconexus’ Guacharos program receive higher prices and support healthy sustainable farms. There are currently 10 producers in the program. This coffee has notes of apple, black tea, caramel and stonefruits.

Description

Producers working with Inconexus’ Guacharos program receive higher prices for their coffees and support healthier, more sustainable farms.

Founded in 2014, Inconexus’s Guacharos program – named after a bird species indigenous to Central and South America – helps farmers improve coffee quality while protecting the environment. Their goal is to new, more sustainable ways to produce high quality coffee in environmentally-beneficial ways. Producers work to improve their coffee quality while preserving their surrounding environment and reduce the impact of their farm’s ecological footprint. Producers working with the Guacharos program see a myriad of benefits, including higher prices for their coffees and healthier, more sustainable farms. Inconexus works with producers to provide agricultural training, access to tools and mentorship to help producers become entrepreneurs who actively promote their coffees while improving their environmental impact.

Producers selectively handpick ripe, red cherry and process it on their farm. Cherry is visually hand sorted, pulped and fermented. After fermentation, coffee is washed in clean water and then dried. Producers rake parchment frequently to ensure even drying. It takes approximately 10 to 20 days for parchment to dry.
