This coffee from Huila makes for a very balanced espresso with chocolatey notes, but with a pleasant acidity making the cup more bright. Still the acidity is not that dominant, so it will work perfectly well as an espresso base in milk beverages.
This coffee from Daterra Classics is perfect as a starting point in Specialty Coffee. It is easier to manage as an extraction in espresso and its sensory profile is very pleasant for any taste buds, as it is sweet, with a medium low acidity and a round syrupy body. It marries perfectly with cow’s milk as well as any kind of vegetal milk for its attenuated acidity will not interact negatively with the milk proteins.
The farm is in hands of the Rodriguez – Luethje Family since 1959.
The initial road was built around 1965 to connect the farm with the town Union Juarez. Years of hard work had to be invested to rebuild the plantation and to modernize the wet and dry milling facilities. Nowadays the farm management takes care of weed control in a mainly manual way to protect the environment and the same goes for the shade management.
Muxbal recognizes that it is only with enough beneficial sun that they will get the optimum quantity and quality of the beans.
It is only with educated and well-prepared staff that all things work smoothly, from the picking of the ripe cherries, to the proper wet and dry process and many other activities required on the farm. Besides the housing and sanitary facilities, there is a school, a childcare nursery and a medical facility on the farm. Finca Muxbal is RFA certified, meaning it was produced following sustainable ecological and socio-economic criteria.
The land of the farm Serra das Araras is operated by Paulo Roberto Cintra Coelho. The coffee here was first planted in the 1960s and has been maintained ever since. This coffee is excellent for an espresso extraction for its high sweetness and good balance in milk beverages.
Rianjagi factory is owned and operated by the Rianjagi Farmers Cooperative Society, which was built in 1950 and currently has just over 1,500 member farmers.
Coffee is picked and delivered by the local farmers on the same day. Before fermenting, the coffee is sorted for quality. Then the cherries are depulped, left to ferment in water tanks overnight and washed with fresh river water the next day, then placed on drying tables.
This is a wonderful bright filter coffee.
