About This Coffee
Huitaca is sourced from smallholder farmers from Colombia’s most famous coffee-growing regions. The farmers typically use the traditional fully washed method of processing. Cherry is selectively handpicked and then pulped, usually on the farm. After pulping, coffee is fermented in tanks for 26 to 36 hours. Then, parchment is washed in clean water and laid on parabolic beds to sundry for up to 20 days.
Colombia has been producing and exporting coffee renowned for their full body, bright acidity and rich aftertaste, since the early 19th century.
Colombia boasts a wide range of climates and geographic conditions that, in turn, produce their own unique flavours in coffee. This also means that harvest times can vary quite a bit. In fact, between all its different regions, Colombia produces fresh crop nearly all year round.
