We are so happy to once again share Gildardo's coffee and to be the exclusive buyer of his incredible Caturra. His coffee continues to impress year after year and this season is no exception! We find a lot of flavors this time around, like mixed berries, key lime, and grape soda. It's quite fruited and very, very sweet. It is incredible that this is only his third season selling his coffee out of the country and we are honored to have purchased his whole production from all 3!

Gildardo is truly an amazing producer. Literally, every single cherry was picked, processed, and dried by him. Generally, farmers will hire pickers to help with the harvest but Gildardo does every single step by himself. He is really motivated to produce the best coffee he can, and the result in this harvest is evidence of that. We hope you all love this coffee as much as we do! Gildardo produced 5 70kg bags this harvest.

Processing Details:

Cherries are collected every 3 weeks at peak ripeness and are left to ferment in
cherry for 24 hours in a wooden hopper. Once depulped, the seeds undergo a 35
hour dry ferment in tiled tanks. They are rinsed four times to remove all
remaining mucilage and moved to the dryer where they are dried for an average of
20 days, depending on the weather.
