Colombia CGLE Mandela Natural

Cupping notes

Winey, peach, plums, tropical fruit.

Description

Mandela is a self pollinated selection from Caturra x Caturra, choosing a bean that gave the best characteristics. This was then crossed with the Timor Hybrid in order to provide some resistance to rust, before being crossed again with Ethiopian landrace varietals such as Sudan Rume, Daleco, and Villa Sarchi. The offspring from those were then selected for the best performing and the varietal stabilised, with the resultant trees exhibiting both bronze and green tips.

It is the perfect example of Cafe Granja La Esperanza (CGLE) specializing in the production and commercialization of specialty coffee varietals, and is unique to their farms.

Fermented for 48 hours in a silo at 35C, then dried in the solar tunnel for 15 days.
