About the coffee:

Blanca Montoya grows coffee just outside the town of La Celia, high in the mountains of Risaralda about a 2 hour drive from Pereira. Ana’s family also own two farms in the area, and there is a strong network of local coffee growers, especially among the small proportion who are aiming to produce high quality lots. Blanca works with the local cooperative, located in La Celia itself, the same cooperative where LaREB initially made contact with Gustavo Acevedo, whose coffee we have bought in the past. The raw material at Blanca’s farm is of high quality, as Blanca is a particular expert in soil health through her secondary business as a compost manufacturer. It was initially as customers of this business that Ana and the rest of the LaREB team met Blanca. Blanca produces a fermented organic compost product known as Super Magro, which is popular in Brazil. The quality potential in this region generally is high, with high altitude and cool temperatures due to the effect of the Pacific Ocean from the other side of the ridge. However, even this close to Pereira, the knowledge of and access to the high-end speciality coffee market is limited, so this quality is often not fully realised. For instance, many coffees are fermented with a focus on efficient production rather than flavour, resulting in under-ferment flavours; sharp and lime-like, lacking integrated sweetness. This lot in particular was a collaboration between Blanca and LaREB, with a 24 hour pre-fermentation in cherry followed by a 36 hour fermentation in tank after depulping. This has resulted in a much more round and integrated cup, while holding onto the fresh and citrus character the area around La Celia seems to exhibit.
