About this Specialty Coffee

Produced in the microlot EL EDEN, this Java varietal is very rare in Colombia as its availability is limited. These particular Java producing trees were planted in2016 at around 1,500 MASL (meters above sea level). The finca is very low density per hectare of 1,800/Ha (in contrast to 5,000-10,000 planst/Ha in other parts of Colombia), which promotes a larger growth of each branch of this varietal. With a span of around 3 meters from the center of the stem to each side, which guarantees an increase in the productivity per plant as has plenty of room to obtain all the resources it needs. This approach develops unprecedented characteristics in the beans, its density and genetics, which results in an outstanding fruity flavour.
The strictest quality control standards are applied to each and every green bean. Berries are hand-picked and carefully inspected by expert pickers, and the team goes to great lengths to select only the finest yields from their lots for The Espresso Lab - Roastery.
