Colombia Javier Rubio Natural CM
Produced by Javier Rubio and his brother Hector, both members of Tres Rayas Coffee Cooperative.
For this microlot, cherries were strictly picked with the same level of ripeness, exposed to a dry extended anaerobic fermentation of 48 hours adding CO2 and dried in parabolic beds to ideal moisture content.
Javier Rubio's farm is 5.5 hectares, where he also grows 15 different types of native trees at his farm while looking after the preservation of animals in the region.
This microlot is 100% San Bernardo. This varietal is a mutation of Typica which was from Guatemala. The trees are much shorter in stature, thus usually referenced as a dwarf variety of Typica. It also takes much longer for them to be grown and produced. As a relative to Typica, the flavour profile is very floral and complex, but sadly the plant itself is quite sensitive to leaf rust.
