ALBEN SANTANA - filter roast ⚡️new⚡️


luisa plum/candy apple

Roasted Friday 1st July 2022

Alben has been in the coffee industry for many years working as a truck driver. Ten years ago he inherited his farm Grano de Oro from his father & started producing coffee in 2015.

This lot was carefully hand-picked selecting only fully ripe cherries. They were then fermented in an oxygen-free environment for 40 hours. Then they were de-pulped, washed & sun-dried on raised beds.

This lot is 100% Castillo developed by CENICAFE {the Colombian coffee research facility} & released in 2005. It was bred from Caturra & Hybrido de Timor. It is highly resistant to disease & is now the most planted cultivar in Colombia.
