We are thrilled to introduce Lot 395 through the Neighbors & Crops program offered by the wonderful folks at La Palma y El Tucan. Lot 395 comes from 30-year old farmer Duvan Alvarez, who despite his young age, has been producing coffee at his La Arboleda farm for 18 years. He was born into a family of traditional farmers, who taught him how to grow coffee from a young age. We are excited to see more young producers like Duvan and his wife creating a financially sustainable future for themselves in specialty coffee. This particular coffee features a unique type of processing, where it undergoes 80hrs of whole cherry lactic acid/anaerobic fermentation. It’s then pulped, washed and dried on African raised beds for 15 days. Our aim has always been to offer coffee on a broad spectrum with something for everyone. At times that means taking the opportunity to bring in a coffee, which pushes those boundaries a little further. Although this coffee sits at a higher price-point than most, we hope you take advantage of the occasion to enjoy something a little extra special with us.
