Columbian Maragogype

Mild, sweet and clean with cocoa, toffee and citrus.

Blanca Lidia Gómez de Burbano owns the 1-hectare farm she calls La Laja, where she grows Maragogype coffee trees. After picking the coffee when the cherries are ripened to a purple color, Lidia begins what she calls a double fermentation: First the cherries are left in a hopper overnight, then they are depulped the next day and fermented for 12 or 13 hours. The coffee is washed twice to remove the mucilage, and then dried in the sun for 8–15 days.
