This coffee comes from our friends at Cofinet, a Colombian owned and operated group of coffee producers that we lean on heavily for our coffee offerings. Cofinet provides us with our core blend component in Ultraviolet and multiple single origin coffees per year. We love to partner with and showcase coffees from producing groups that offer various quality tiers. This allows us to highlight the width and depth of quality coffee from the same origins, with all of their distinctives and individual qualities on display.

Cofinet says this about themselves, “For 80 years our family business has grown and distributed the finest Colombian coffee to local exporters. In 2015 we expanded our operations and began producing, sourcing and exporting specialty coffee to the rest of the world. As growers, we specialize in alternative fermentation processes that are new to Colombia. On our farm and in our Processing Centre La Pradera, the most exotic varieties are processed, achieving unique profiles that are unknown for Colombian coffees. Cofinet also represents and supports a large number of Colombian Specialty coffee growers. Our aim is to encourage direct relationships between our farmers at origin and roasters around the world. We pride ourselves on creating sustainable, ethical and long-term relationships.

This particular coffee comes from Leonid Ramirez, a coffee grower in Cofinet’s producing group. Leonid cares for his farm, La Cortina de Hierro, in Quindio, Colombia. It’s 100% Castillo, a lab augmented cultivar that is more productive to common Caturra and resistant to leaf rust. This coffee was exposed to a dry aerobic fermentation of 24 hours and then placed inside Grainpro bags for 50 more hours at a temperature below 22 degrees celsius. Then, the coffee was pulped, gently washed, and placed on raised beds to dry.

This is a super classic Colombian profile. It’s expressive, sweet, and absolutely crushable. You’ll notice hints of dried berries, fresh pecan pie, and a sparkling lime-like acidity!
