FRANCISCO FLOREZ - filter roast ⚡️new⚡️


guava/red apple/panela

Roasted Wednesday 8th July 2020

Fernando purchased El Pastal from his cousin 5 years ago. After getting advice from the FNC {Federación Nacional de Cafeteros} he planted Castillo.

Initially the results were poor but following  his neighbours suggestions to extend the fermentation times the coffee the results are great.

After harvesting, the cherries are dry fermented for 20 hours, de-pulped, dry fermented for 40 hours in ceramic tanks, washed then dried on raised beds for 20 days.

Castillo was 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 coffee cultivar in Colombia
