JOSÉ ROBERTO - filter roast



Roasted Friday 6th September 2019

José Roberto's finca {farm} San Juan is located on the side of Volcan de Agua near the colonial town of Antigua. He grows mostly Bourbon & Caturra with a small amount of Catuai. By all accounts José also grows amazing avocados.

The coffee grows in the rich volcanic soils & the nearby Volcan de Fuego also adds a dusting of mineral rich ash every now & again.

After harvesting the coffee is de-pulped, fermented, washed then sun-dried on a concrete patio. 

Bourbon is a natural mutation of Typica originating from La Réunion, formerly known as Île Bourbon. Cherries can be either red, yellow, orange or pink when ripe. Bourbon is 1/3rd more productive than Typica. Caturra is a mutation of Bourbon discovered in Brasil in 1937. It is a compact plant & very productive but susceptible to disease. Catuai is a hybrid of Mundo Novo & Caturra developed in Brasil in the 40's.
