This is an Excelseo EP Organic, Caturra variety produced in Tolima, Colombia. This coffee is grown by Uriel Torres at his farm, La Illusión, in the San Miguel township in the Planadas district at 1780 masl. This coffeeis produced by the Asociación Tres Rayas Coffee - an association with 2,500 members - which has been producing specialty coffee since 2014. Of these 2,500 members, 61 families have dedicated their work to the production of certified specialty coffee (USDA Organic, EU Organic and Fair Trade). Uriel Torres has specialized in producing variety coffee Caturra at 1,780 masl. His estate, La Ilusión, is located in the middle of a dense forest of cedar, walnut, and rubber trees, immersed in a geographical area partially surrounded by the Nevado del Huila volcano and the River Ata. This pure, crystal-clear water nourishes Uriel Torres's farm that he cares for with his family. To process this grain, they gather several members of the community and together collect by hand the ripe cherries. Then they are fermented for 24 hours, enhancing the sugar naturally found in the fruit. Finally they are washed and put in parabolic dryers for 20 to 22 days.This process achieves a coffee with medium body and a unique cup profile.
