Colombia CGLE Tres Dragones

Cupping notes

Tropical fruit over guava, blueberry yoghurt, and cassis. Chocolate and caramel with buttery, silky body, and opens well as it cools. Moreish.

Description

Tres Dragones gets its name from three furnaces that are used to generate the heat for drying the coffees on the Potosi farm. Sending sparks in to the air, they caused a fire that burnt the farmhouse down,

Located in Caicedonia and comprising of 52 hectares, 34 hectares goes in to producing the Colombia variety that this lot is comprised of.

The Colombia varietal is a commonly found hybrid between Hybrid-de-Timor and Caturra, great for rust resistance and with a high yield potential. When picked, the coffee is fermented for 19-22 hours before pulping and fermented again an additional 35 hours. Transported to a silo and left to dry 48 hours before finally being taken to the solar driers where it will rest for around 15 days.
