Tasting Experience Feel like a kid at the candy store holding a chocolate coated plum. A sweet aroma emerges before the crust is broken, complimenting the nutty and sweet which pourover brewers will love
For espresso drinkers, dial up the brewing temperature and try it black & iced! Milk-based espresso drinkers will savour whiffs of plum & nectarine between ships.
2 Day Fermentation
Coffee cherries are hand-picked and sent to the highest part of the road and sent to the wet mill for processing. Each fermentation lot has 2 different days of picking. Coffee picked on Day 2 is added to Day 1 after 24 hours fermentation, and the mixture is left to ferment in the tanks for a further 24 hours. In this 2 step fermentation, the second batch raises the PH level of the fermentation tank, allowing longer fermentation times without the acetic acid produced by bacteria at a lower PH level.
After being fully washed, the coffee is dried in silos (towers to dry food), and warm air from Cauca River Valley is circulated throughout the coffee to provide even driving
Farm Information One of 5 sister farms which form the Santa Barbara Estate, Agua Linda is located at the highest elevation surrounded by creeks and production is separated from the other farms, though they share the same wet mill. A family business that started in the 20th century, Pedro the father started acquiring Santa Barbara land for the microclimates at high altitudes with outstanding volcanic soil. Pedro the son has also joined the family business and experiments with coffee processing.
