This is our second year sourcing this coffee from Luis Alberto-- you may remember it as "Balladarez" which is what we had labeled it as last year. This is always such a funky coffee, and we love it. This year we are getting tropical notes up front and a creamy nuttiness in the finish.
Finca La Bendición has a loose sandy soil, with abundant humus and has an annual rainfall of between 1,400 and 1,600mm. In addition, the farm has a rich biodiverse environment of fauna and flora, with an abundance of broad-leaved trees and conifer species. All of this together, creates for optimal coffee growing conditions. The care and processing that goes into every lot that is processed in this farm is second to none, with careful detail at every stage, starting with optimal cherry picking at the farm level. Washed coffees are dried for between 20-25 days, honeys 20-25 days and naturals, between 30-35 days! Luis Alberto won 6th place in the COE this year, 1st place in 2020, 1st and 5th place in 2018, as well as 13th and 3rd place in 2017.... he is no stranger to producing exceptional coffees.
