Pueblo Nuevo - Colombia (250g)
This microlot was produced by Bailies long-standing, single origin partner Comepcafe Cooperative.
They thought it would be a great idea to try something new this year round and are extremely excited to share this project.
They've been working with their partners over at Comepcafe Cooperative for the past 4 years now, it's been a staple in the Single Origin and Blend offerings and is now making an appearance as a Microlot. Comepcafe is a quality focused Cooperative with smallholder farmers contributing to the overall quality of coffee produced each year at harvest.
This year Bailies have kindly asked to have the top microlots separated to help showcase the quality of the Co-op. From this, they now have a standout microlot on the table from what would normally be combined with all other lots
After tasting, a producer group from the small town of Pueblo Nuevo has came out on top with this incredibly sweet and refreshing microlot, a rarity and a showcase to the ongoing partnership they continue to foster with the Comepcafe.
Every farmer is provided with a small yet professional washing station on his land. As the coffee cherries ripen they collect them and bring them to the ‘benefício’ the 'washing station'.
They are pulped on small drum pulpers and fermented for 12-18 hours. Afterwards, the beans are washed in channels and placed into parabolic tents where moisture and temperature are controlled for the best drying conditions.
The process usually takes around 10 days until the clean parchment beans reach an optimal 12% moisture content.
