Finca Bet-EL grow and offer high quality nanolots cup scoring 88-92.
Grown at 1600 meters above sea level in Valle Del Cauca Colombia 🇨🇴 ❤️
Despite once being one of the epicenters of the Colombian armed conflict, Valle del Cauca has a lot to offer. It is located on the Pacific coast of the country, bordering Chocó, Tolima, and Cauca. The valley is considered one of the most fertile regions in Colombia, with the Cauca river running through it.
This river plays a fundamental role in coffee, as it is the basis for their approach to coffee growing.
Farmers in the region are keenly aware of the importance of water management, eco-friendly farming practices, and protecting the region’s natural resources.
A great example is Finca Bet-El in the municipality of Calima. Its owner, Cesar Ledesma, focuses on producing special micro-lots coming from his agroforestry plantation.
The vision of protecting the ecosystem is evident on the farm, where nature flourishes beautifully.
Hundreds of different species of birds can be seen flying over the farm full of varieties such as Pink Bourbon, Sudan Rume, Geisha, Castillo, and Yellow Tabi.
Cesar’s focus on the preservation and care of the ecosystem within the farm has led him to avoid the use of any pesticides.
He also prioritizes post-harvesting processes that use less water and dries the beans with methods that return the water from the drying process back to nature.
We are thrilled to offer coffees produced by Cesar, like this special lot of anaerobic Castillo.
The cherries were carefully hand-picked, fermented anaerobically with lactic inoculum for 72 hours and then sun-dried.
Its cup is complex, with sparkling citric acidity, and flavors of caramel delicately complemented with fragrances of vanilla and orange.
