Café Granja Cerro Azul - Hybrid Washed Gesha

This is the first year we have purchased Geshae grown on Cafe Granja s Cerro Azul farm specifically source for the Danish Brewers Cup competition. The experience of bringing Gesha varietal to Colombia was pivotal to Granja in their endeavor to adapt more exotic varietals to the Colombian soil, showcasing a wide view of the Cauca Valley terroir. They have begun to experiment with unique processing - tank fermentation to create incredible control over initial in-cherry fermentations, and technical drying.

About the processing: Hybrid Washed:

Manual and rigorous picking. Adequate equipment for the de-pulping process, which is done without water. Coffee is stirred and sensorial tasted to determine the ideal fermentation based on the cup profile wanted. Fermentation time for this coffee ranges between 19 and 22 hours in whole cherries, then the cherries skin is taken out to start the second fermentation step in parchment and mucilage and last for 35 hours.

About Cafe Granja.

Cafe Granja is intimately familiar with the care and attention the Geisha plant needs. They were one of the first to bring this varietal to Colombia, having previously owned a farm in Panama, the adopted home of this lauded varietal. This translates into their excellent work at the farm level, this coffee is an accurate representation of the potential of the Geisha varietal in Colombia. Clean acidity, intense and distinct flavours, and some of the most incredible aromatics we have come across in coffee. The experts chose Cerro Azul at Granja as a perfect location for developing ultra high-quality Geisha cherries. The farm area is further southwest in the Cauca Valley than Potosí and Las Margaritas, closer to the state capital of Cali and to Colombia’s Pacific coast. The cool breeze from the Pacific combined with the very high altitude mean that the trees have to fight low average temperatures and large day-night swings in temperatures to survive, concentrating energy into their cherries as sugar. This leads to a high sweetness and intensity of flavour in the final cup. This incredible quality of raw material has to be treated with great care at each further stage to preserve the potential created in the field. Luckily, the Cafe Granja La Esperanza team consistently takes care of these stages of the process with aplomb.
