Bluebeard is proud to continue their support of the Aso Guacharos group to bring you exquisite coffee from an enviro-sustainability focused group of coffee farmers in Bruselas, Southern Huila (close to Pitalito), Colombia. Los Guacharos are a group of independent, quality-focused small producers who are collectively converting to organic agriculture, making their own fertilizers and fungicides, installing complex water filtration systems that use gravity, stones and sand to remove all mucilage residues from waste water to not contaminate water systems.
This lot is made up of coffee from five producers -- Jose Uribe Lasso, Ana Nelly Luna, Rubio Bolaños, Germán Ortiz, and Luz Dary Polo -- farming Caturra, Colombia, and Tabi varietals. Cherries are picked as ripe as can be, depulped the same day, fermented until they reach their ideal washing point for maximum sweetness, and fully washed. Parchment coffee is stored in grain pro bags at home to ensure that humidity is stable at around 11%.
