Juan Saldarriaga is a young producer that took over the families farms in 2012 and started to plant several different and new cultivars. Cultivars include the more common Castillos and Caturras as well as more unusual Tabis, Bourbones, Geisha and SL28’s. The idea is to figure out how they all perform in the environment, and then increase production over time. Juan has also recently built different concepts of drying facilities, changed the processing and started to manage a few other farms in the area too.

This lot is a mix of two farms from the same owner and producers, La Claudina and El Encanto. The reason these were blended together was that it was two smaller lots made out of the fairly distinct and well performing variety Tabi. It’s a fully washed lot. The coffees are picked and sorted before they are pulped and dry fermented for 24 hours with intermediate rinse in clean water. It’s dried on raised beds under shade for 25 days.
