LUIS FERNANDO TORO - filter roast



Roasted Monday 17th May 2021

This lot was grown by Luis Fernando Toro at his small farm Finca La Mariela. The coffee was selectively handpicked at perfect ripeness.

At his mill, the cherries were processed using an extended fermentation method Luis learned from his neighbour. Cherries were placed in grain pro bags for 40 hours, de-pulped & placed back in the bags for another 50 hours. The coffee was then washed & placed on raised beds to dry.

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.
