A bit more about what makes this coffee special...

Julio Cesar Madrid Tisnés is a third-generation coffee producer and has dedicated himself to the production of quality coffees. This dedication has led him to focus on producing coffee varieties that are relatively rare in Colombia and are known for their complex cup profiles, including varieties like Sudan Rume, Yirgacheffe, Laurina, and several others. Julio’s daughter, Maria Antonia Madrid, is a biologist who has researched the organoleptic impact of using microbial starter cultures in coffee fermentation, helping Julio to improve his processing methods.

This particular lot of Caturra coffee underwent Nitro Washed processing. Freshly harvested coffee cherries were first fermented in bags for 10–12 hours. The fermented coffee was then pulped and fermented for another 10–12 hours in a plastic tank with the mucilage still attached. The coffee was then fermented for 4–6 days in a sealed bioreactor with added yeast and nitrogen before finally being sun dried for 15–20 days. It's a meticulous process that requires careful monitoring at every step!
