SOLD OUT: Colombia – Monteblanco: Mint Infused Purple Caturra
$24.50 – $118.00
Introducing our INFUSION SERIES! Partnering together with Rodrigo at Finca Monteblanco we are showcasing a series of Purple Caturra varieties throughout the coming months. Each coffee is processed the same, yet fermented with different fruits and spices. So flavor notes of caramel and plum will be evident in each, a contribution of the purple caturra variety and washed processing, yet with notable infusions of various fruits and spices.
Like any other washed coffee, this purple Caturra is depulped and cleaned. Rather than sending it directly to a drying bed, however, it takes a detour to the fermenting tank where it ferments in water with activated yeast and a corresponding flavor. In this instance, mint. When tasted next to the other infusions, this lot sets itself apart with a subtly cooling aromatic and an astonishingly creamy mouthfeel.
Rodrigo’s interesting processing methods were born out of necessity. The Huila harvest, once a concentrated season of three months, now lasts the entire year, requiring a need to be constantly competitive, interesting, and delicious.
