This coffee is produced at Finca Cristales, owned by Marcela Castellanos and her husband.

Marcela was a doctor from Bogotá. She got married to Jaime Virgilio, also a Doctor, but based in Quindío so she moved to Armenia in 2005. In Quindío, Marcela fell in love with coffee and started to get involved with the coffee community. She started learning about cupping, processing, harvesting, and post-harvesting. She, along with her husband, focused on Specialty Coffee and planted exotic varieties like Pink Bourbon, Java, Gesha, and Laurina.

Sadly, 3 years ago Marcela got an incurable disease, and one year ago passed away. We wanted to thank Marcela and her husband for the incredible moments we had together and for the incredible coffee she produced. Now, Jaime takes care of the farm as he wants to continue honoring his wife’s work by providing beautiful coffees.

This coffee was carefully hand-picked in order to use only the ripest cherries, exposed to a dry anaerobic fermentation of 65 hours before pulped inside GrainPro bags below 20 degrees Celsius, in this environment bacteria feeds from carbohydrates and sugars
from the mucilage. This leads to a higher concentration of lactic acid. Afterwards pulped gently washed and placed on raised beds to 10.5% moisture content.

This microlot is 100% Java. This variety originated in Ethiopia and is a natural mutation of Typica. The seeds were taken to Indonesia where it was named Java. In 1991, it was introduced to Costa Rica and in 2010, it made its way into Colombia.
