Colombia Finca Los Mangos Microlot - 12 oz.

This is a very special coffee. Grown on Finca Los Mangos by Aracely Vitonco, this coffee is intensely sweet with a juicy fruit acidity to match. With a creamy mouthfeel, sweet caramelized sugar notes (think creme brulee!), a chocolate backbone and acidity that reminds us of tropical fruit, lime and lemon punch, this coffee is a knockout! 

Aside from the flavors in the cup, the story behind this coffee makes it even more special. 

Aracely has been helping her mother sow and grow coffee plants since Aracely was 8 years old, and she grew up helping her family harvest and care for the cherries during the busy season. After marriage, she and her husband decided to continue farming coffee to support their family. She hopes that her children will continue the family tradition.

Finca Los Mangos is a 2.5-hectare farm, 2 hectares of which are planted in coffee—10,000 trees, a mix of Colombia and Castillo cultivars. The coffee is picked ripe (purple cherries for the Castillo), depulped that same afternoon, and dry fermented for 18 hours. Then it is washed four times and laid out in parabolic dryers for 8–10 days, depending on the weather. Aracely focuses on quality, and describes herself as "very strict" about the picking: Only ripe cherries will do, and she is specific about the visual appearance of ripe Castillo versus ripe Colombia.

We're excited and honored to bring this coffee to you. We hope you enjoy + savor each cup!
