Aguas Claras farm is located in one of Colombia’s prime growing regions, Huila and this coffee certainly lives up to the reputation that precede coffees grown here. It feels super mellow on the palate, with notes of red apple finishing up with butterscotch and Brazil nuts.
This easy drinker is everything we wanted from our first Colombian coffee, so much so that after we tasted it on the cupping table we got a little bit excited and ordered every single bean on offer from our import partners Right Side Coffee.
Jaiber Joven inherited his farm from his father and lives there with his wife and daughters. He has worked tirelessly to improve the consistency and quality of their coffee, but he hasn’t stopped there. Jaiber is constantly working on exciting new processing techniques to help elevate his coffees to the next level and the results are a joy to drink.
The ripe coffee cherries are picked by hand and then washed to remove the cherry skins, before going through a prolonged fermentation. Jaiber then dries the coffee slowly, over approximately 28 days, through a drying process called ‘paseras’, where he leaves some open spaces amongst the coffee to allow for the air to flow.
We will always remember this as the first coffee we ever sourced and roasted ourselves. We hope that you do too.
