Finca Monteverde was inherited by Gildardo Gutiérrez, making the Gutiérrez family now fifth generation of coffee producers. Ten years ago, their three children who are dedicated Q Graders, started focusing on their vision of producing exotic varietals supported by their parents. After years of experimentation with processing they have found methods to unlock unknown flavour from their coffee.
Their farm has 15 hectares of Red and Yellow Bourbon, Geisha, Wush Wush and Mokka varietals. We are honoured to be sharing with you their Yellow Wush Wush, which well reflects the family's attention to detail in harvesting and processing. They never compromise during the entire process and are committed to their strict schedules.
We are privileged to be able to share yet another spectacular lot from our very good friends at Finca Monteverde! This particular Geisha was harvested this March, the cherries were left to ferment whole for 30 hours, then depulped and left with water for 24 hours. After fermentation the cherries are thoroughly washed three times, before going to dry in a solar drying three level marquee. On the first five days they are dried on the first bed closest to the ground, then moved to the next bed for 13 days, followed by the final for 2 days, totalling 20 days.
This coffee is an exceptional example of a washed Geisha, with all the original varietal flavours including flawless florality and a strong stone fruit presence making it one memorable flavour experience!
