This is the second of three lots we have from Finca Patio Bonito this year, and this one is a natural process.
Carlos’s farm is called Finca Patio Bonito (“pretty courtyard”), and he’s been farming for 40 years, along with his wife Maria Angela, who is also a schoolteacher. Five years ago, he started working with Banexport, and the partnership has dramatically improved the prices he sells his coffee for, the increase in production they’ve helped him with, the learning they’ve done together, and the improvements on the infrastructure and processing equipment on the farm. This is a perfect example of why working with good exporters, good traders, and (hopefully) good roasters can make a long-term difference to farmers.
This coffee is comprised of Castillo and Colombia varietals, and it’s processed using a natural method, whereby whole cherries are dried on raised beds under a parabolic dryer, before being dry milled when the moisture level has reached the correct reading.
The result is a coffee that is rich and boozy, but really clean for a natural. We get masses of rum & raisin, with plenty of blueberry, some Pedro Ximenez sherry flavours, and a chunky body. It’s perfectly suited to espresso and milk drinks, but also to filter and cafetière too – it’ll work however you want to drink it, but it’ll always be a big mouthful of fruit!
This is the second year of roasting Señor Carlos’s coffees, and if you haven’t checked out his other coffees then you really should.
