CERRO AZUL GESHA HONEY
Near to the La Esperanza farm in Trujillo lies Cerro Azul. With nearly 34,000 trees producing 7 lots of coffee in the Cafe Granja line up, this farm is notorious for the Gesha it produces.
High altitudes, 1500mm rainfall and 85-90% humidity make for a unique microclimate, and 17 hectares of that are the Gesha trees that produce the cherries for this coffee.
Following rigorous quality control during picking, the coffee is fermented for 19-22 hours as whole cherry before depulping without water and further fermenting for 35 hours.
For the next 48 hours the coffee is kept in a silo at 35°C with final drying occurring on the solar beds for 15 days.
