Elias, like many other farmers in the region, is indigenous to the area. He shares a deep connection to his land and his roots. We picked this particular lot, a Colombia variety, for its intensity and dense fruit-forward profile. Elias processes this coffee differently than most, leaning into heavy fermentation to create a distinct coffee character. It is cherry-fermented for 24 hours, then depulped and dry-fermented for five days. The coffee is deep into fermentation by the time he washes it and spreads it out to dry.
