HISTORY: 
This Java is a very rare variety in Colombia, and in this case, it is a coffee located facing the snowy mountain "El Ruiz" and is part of a micro-lot from El Vergel State. Planted in 2016 with a quantity of 9.200 plants, this microlot has been one of the most exotic of the estate developing totally unique profiles. Back in 1995, the Bayter Family rolled up their sleeves and dove headfirst into the agricultural scene at El Vergel farm. Avocado was their main squeeze, but when avocado prices took a nosedive in 2006, they knew it was time to shake things up. So, they tossed some coffee varieties into the mix – catimore, red, yellow caturra – and boom, a coffee empire was born! Fast forward to 2016, and with a little guidance from coffee guru Miguel Jimenez, they planted specialty coffee varieties, setting the stage for some serious coffee greatness. Then, in a stroke of genius, they embraced natural coffee processes in 2018, tinkering with fermentation control like mad scientists in a lab. And let's not forget their claim to fame – the Koji fermentation process, a game-changer in the green coffee game! Now, meet the dynamic trio behind the scenes: Martha Montenegro, along with her coffee-savvy partners Elias and Shady. Together, they're not just brewing coffee; they're brewing up a whole community revolution! Their mission? To blend tech magic with coffee passion and sprinkle a little extra joy into the lives of everyone at El Vergel Estate.
PROCESS DESCRIPTION: 
This Java coffee begins with meticulously selected cherries, ensuring over 95% are at their peak. The process continues with anaerobic fermentation, providing a spa-like environment for the beans to enhance their flavors. Subsequently, a deliberate and gradual drying process unfolds, allowing the beans to soak up the sun and absorb natural goodness. This Java coffee prioritizes quality at every step, emphasizing a meticulous approach over quantity.
