The coffees being produced at El Vergel are outstanding and we are super excited to have found them. We had planned to visit them in 2020 but due to COVID we had to put that trip on hold although Shady took us for a virtual tour of the farm and processing station and we can not wait until we are able to visit.
This lot is a natural processed Caturra varietal that has been double fermented. The whole cherries undergo a 12 hour aerobic fermentation in sealed bags and then then a 60 hour anaerobic fementation in. plastic tanks. After fermentation the cherries are sun dried for 15 days.
This process highlights a tropical quality in the coffee that is very sweet and clean.
