We are super excited to have been able to purchase a competitive ranked lot from the Colombia Land of Diversity auction. This ranked lot comes from Elpidio Arboleda’s farm in Urrao which is a village in the Antioquia district in Colombia. What makes this lot so special is that Elpidio only produces 25 bags per year and spends much of his time on the processing of the coffee. Elpidio depulps and ferments his coffee in batches, mixing the freshly depulped loads with coffee that has already fermented. The total fermentation time is 72 hours. After washing the coffees clean of mucilage, the seeds are dried in rooftop dryers under the sun.
What can be expected in the cup is a very aromatic and balanced coffee with a sugary mouthfeel and juicy sweetness.
We can only produce 80 4-ounce bags and will be roasting this coffee once a month to bulk orders. Please keep this in mind when you place your order and look at the next roast date at the top of the page.

ABOUT THE COFFEE:
Elpidio Arboleda Tabares owns an 8-hectare farm in Urrao, Antioquia, where he has 1.5 hectares of coffee planted. His annual production is around 25 bags.
The coffees on La Soledad are harvested ripe and processed in an interesting way: Elpidio depulps and ferments his coffee in batches, mixing the freshly depulped loads with coffee that has already fermented. The total fermentation time is 72 hours. After washing the coffees clean of mucilage, the seeds are dried in rooftop dryers under the sun.
This coffee won 10th place in the Land of Diversity cupping competition and auction arranged by the National Federation of Coffee Growers in late 2020.
