JHON JAIRO RODRIGUEZ - filter roast
Roasted Thursday 28th October 2020
Jhon runs Finca Costa Rica with his sons. He's entered the local coffee competition for the last couple of years, coming 7th in 2018 & 3rd in 2019.
At harvest only perfectly ripe cherries are selected, pickers will pass many times through the same parts of the farm as cherries ripen. They are then stored in large plastic bags to ferment for 35 hours, increasing sweetness & adding flavour. They are then pulped, washed & dried on raised beds.
This lot is 100% Caturra - it is a mutation of Bourbon discovered in Brasil in 1937. The plant is a dwarf so it can be planted close together resulting in more production per hectare. Caturra has good flavour characteristics but is susceptible to disease.
