Salvador Santos Martinez owns the 3.5-hectare certified-organic farm Los Melocotones, which has just over 1 hectare planted with coffee plants. Salvador grows both IHCAFE 90 and Caturra varieties.
After picking, the coffee is delivered to the receiving and collection center at CAFESCOR, where it is depulped and fermented for 15–18 hours dry. It's then washed once to remove the mucilage, and dried on patios for 10–15 days. Salvador has received technical advice from the association, who supports the development and processing of his microlots.
|Variety||Caturra, IHCAFE 90|
Tasting notes: Rich caramel with plum, cola, citrus and intense ripe cherry; creamy, sugary sweet, and big tart fruit acidity.
