Gaslight Coffee Roasters participated in the Virtual Buyers Caravan in 2020 for microlot coffees from Colombia.
This coffee of Cauca comes from Santander de Quilichao from Gregorio Perdomo and his wife Aida Menza. The harvest produced 840 kilos of post processed coffee of which we procured 560 kilos.
It is a Castillo variety, which is harvested 1922 meters above sea level and undergoes a washed process - 24 hours in mucilage - after which the coffee is sundried on beds for 18 days.
This particular coffee and Gregorio Perdomo are a part of Coffee for Peace, which is an alliance of coffee farmers and market allies in Colombia created to develop, facilitate and promote the trade of traceable coffees from historically violent zones in Colombia.
We're tasting meringue, marshmallow, and lime.
