Description

Roberto Herrera owns and operates Finca Ojo de Agua, a 1.5 hectare farm planted with about 6,000 Caturra plants. Located in the Chirinos municipality, this farm has sandy, loamy soil, and a tropical climate. During harvest, only the ripest of cherries are selected for processing and depulped on the same day. Once depulped, the coffee is fermented without water for an average period of 28-35 hours and then fully washed 3 times with clean, spring water. For drying, coffee is moved to raised beds inside a covered dryer and a patio is also used for overflow drying. After the 15-20 day period that it takes to fully dry these coffees, Roberto then places his coffee into bags and stores them in a cool, dark room before delivering them to Lima Coffees for cupping, milling, and exportation.

 

The cup is sweet and soft with winey fruit acidity, berry and praline flavors.
