Benjamin Rivera

This coffee was grown by Benjamin Gilberto Rivera at the farm La Molienda. This coffee is harvested following strict ripeness criteria, floated and hand-sorted to remove any defects. Cherries were then exposed to 30 hours of underwater fermentation before being pulped. 

The parchment was then gently washed and then dried in temperature-controlled conditions until ideal moisture content was achieved. 

This micro-lot is 100% Caturra. This variety originated in Minas Gerais, Brazil. It is a natural mutation of Red Bourbon. Caturra produces more coffee and is more resistant to plant diseases than Bourbon.
