Cielo is from the “partida”, this meaning the higher quality areas Eduardo and his team have identified on their farms, typically higher altitude and shade grown. After picking, the beans were kept separate and fermented for 18-20 hours to remove the mucilage. Once complete the beans were dried on raised beds in the shade for 9 days so the beans reached moisture content of 12%.

This lot is 100% red bourbon, bourbon being the oldest known mutation of typica. The name derives from the island where the variety was discovered, now known as Reunion Island. Bourbon is known for its sweet cup quality and crisp acidity. This coffee particularly showing red fruit and apple sweetness with a rich dark chocolate finish.
