Finca Morelia is located in the Huila Department, a province in southwest Colombia. The Caturra coffee plants from Farmer Miller Walles Cruz grow there at 1770m above sea level. Miller decided 15 years ago to swap sugar cane for coffee. Since then he has been experimenting with growing different varieties and processing methods. It was very important to him to leave part of his land untouched so as not to destroy the biodiversity of the area.
Only when the coffee cherries are fully ripe are they harvested by hand before they are weighed and sorted. The sorting is carried out in huge water tanks - everything that is immature, overripe or rotten floats on top and is skimmed off. After 36 hours in the water bath, the beans are ready for fermentation. To do this, the slightly softened coffee cherries are placed in a tank, where they rest for 75 hours and intensify their taste.
When the fermentation process is complete, the beans will dry in the sun for 25 days.
Now the processed beans only have to be roasted to bring out their flavors of red grape, orange and nougat.
