I kid you not, the farm name is actually Lord Voldemort. Diego Garcia is one of the most innovative cultivars of coffee and he’s also a big Harry Potter fan. The name is crazy, but also his approach on the coffee. He studied microbiology and made his own strain of bacteria he uses for fermentation. This results in a full and sweet coffee with caramel milk chocolate, grapes, cherries and citrus.



Deiro Garcia is one of the most innovative growers in Huila, he has a farm in Pitalito (Huila), and since he is a great fan of Harry Potter, he gave it a name that it will sure surprise you, Lord Voldemort, not only is the name crazy, but also his approach to coffee fermentation.

Deiro has been working with coffee processing for more than 3 years, he has done several tests with outstanding outcomes and has established a standard processing for the coffee on his farm. In the microbiology course taken, he learnt that certain bacteria and yeast strains can help produce distinct coffee profiles, therefore he decided to reproduce his own bacteria and yeasts using home-made ferments from different fruits and vegetables.

The washed process used for this batch of Pink Bourbon is the traditional fermentation that takes place in cement tanks. It began with a hopper fermentation for 24 hours.
