Colombia, El Mirador

Finca El Mirador is run by Jose Javier Canacue, and Tusa Specialty has been working with him since 2015. The farm sits at 1,939 meters and consists of 8 Ha in total, with approximately 4 planted in coffee. Of those four, two are made up of Castillo/Colombia, one is made up of Caturra and the fourth, the newest lot, which will be planted in a few months, will be Caturra Chiroso. The lot from this harvest is made up of the Caturra variety and is the result of different fermentation experiments. Historically, Javier fermented his coffee for 36 hours, but it seemed that the "newer" trees of the renovated lot were causing quality to fall slightly. As such, Tusa decided to extend the fermentation and the final result is a combination of 12 hours in cherry, followed-up by a 39 hours dry ferment (turned over approximately every 6 hours). Once the coffee has been washed, it's taken the African beds to dry, anywhere from 18-25 days, depending on the weather.  Maquina is very pleased with the results and look forward to working with Javier to improve the quality even more. In addition, another important point to note is that Javier pays a 25% premium to pickers compared to the average wage, to help guarantee a more uniform picking of only mature cherries.
