Finca La Cristalina is located in the area of Bajo Espanol in Chinchina, Caldas. This farm has been part of the Valdez family for three generations with Luiz ‘s grandparents being the first owners. Luiz took control of the 21 ha farm in 1999 buying it from his father and Uncles.
There are about 142000 trees on the farm and these are caturra, castillo, colombia and pink bourbon. Recently Luiz had been experimenting with processing and had started to produce natural coffees on the farm.
They use a Brix meter to make sure the sugar content of the cherry is high enough for the natural process. The cherry is washed and floated to remove any immature beans. This lot is made up of pink bourbon & caturra coffees that have been selected to make this lot.
They then fermented the coffee as cherry in a barrel for 12 -15 hours overnight. After this the cherry is then placed on raised beds and dried for 30 – 35 days turning regularly and maintaining a temperature below 40 degrees.
Specialty coffee, 100% Arabica, carefully grown in a precise geographical area, carefully picked, processed, selected, and freshly roasted, in small batches, specific to the origin and method of processing.
