TOLMIE PEAK-Colombia El Guamo
This coffee comes from Enuar Ordoñez, a young farmer who grew up around coffee production his whole life. He now lives on the farm with his wife and 2 sons. Finca El Guamo is a 2ha farm situated at 1,850masl Enuar cultivates the varieties of Caturra, Castilla and Colombia.
This lot utilises a traditional washed process. Ripe cherries are harvested by hand, pulped, and then dry-fermented for 24-36 hours depending on climatic conditions. The coffee is then thoroughly washed to remove any excess mucilage, which has broken down during the fermentation process. After washing the coffee is dried on a concrete patio in the sun for 3-4 days, after which it is transferred to a parabolic solar drier for a further 10 days, or until the optimum moisture content has been achieved.
