FROM THE IMPORTER
Rodrigo Albeto Peláez Gallego has been growing coffee for 18 years, and has developed sophisticated systems by using technology to monitor coffee quality, and log sensory and physical information about his crops using a database called TASTYFY.
Don Rodrigo's farm is one of the largest that we have seen in the Best Cup competitions: He has 95 hectares of land, 70 of which are planted with 340,000 coffee trees. For this lot, only the ripe Caturra cherry was picked and depulped and sorted using a machine called a Becolsub, which reduces the amount of water typically used in depulping and sorting. This lot comprises only ripe Caturra cherry, which are dry fermented for 18 hours before being washed and primarily mechanically dried.
