About The Producer

Over the mountain in La Sierra neighbourhood, commune 8 of Medellín, there is a group of farmers who produce high-quality coffee.

The coffee of this micro-lot was harvested in 3 farms of the region: El Descanso, El Tractor, and Villa Sierra. After picking, the ripe cherries are transported to the wet mill, which is called Renacer (meaning new growth in Spanish). It’s here where the magic happens, the mill develops the Alcoholic-Lactic process, which gives this coffee a unique flavour. Nowadays, the farmers can concentrate exclusively on the collection of their beans, and Renacer wet mill is focused on processing and experimentation.

The farmers have a very strict cherry selection criteria on their farms, once the cherries are picked they bring them to the processing centre. After screening, only the ripe cherries are allowed into the fermentation process.

The fermentation’s are restricted, and they are divided into two parts.
The first fermentation happens in the cherry, where we look to activate the yeasts, and it lasts for approximately 100 hours. The second fermentation happens after de-pulping the cherries, this process is done at 17°C so that the lactobacillus work more effectively and this takes about 70 hours.

Total time for the fermentation’s 170 hours.

This beautiful, unique coffee has a cup score of 88 and is made up of the Caturra, Bourbon, & Typica varietals. Once roasted you expect to find notes of Sherry, lime, tropical fruit & dried apricot.
