DESCRIPTION

Luis Alfredo Arenas (Alfredo for short) is one of thirteen members of ASPROCAAR — a producers’ association based in La Argentina, western Huila, Colombia. His farm, Finca el Mirador, is located in Saladoblanco, a couple of hours south and west of their HQ. There, he has just shy of 20,000 trees, ~3,500 of which are Pink Bourbon, ~1,200 Caturra, and Variedad Colombia for the rest. This particular offering is made exclusively with Pink Bourbon — an increasingly in-vogue variety known for layering some classic South American cup characteristics with silkier, tropical flavors typically associated with East Africa.

Aside from a strong variety selection, Alfredo keeps his coffees in tip-top shape with a meticulous washing process that moves from a brief low-oxygen whole-cherry fermentation to a longer low-oxygen seeds-only fermentation, and finishes with 15 - 20 days of drying on raised beds. Michelle from Shared Source is the importing pal who put this in front of us, and yet again, we owe her bundles of gratitude for the find. Working with ASPROCAAR since 2015, Shared Source has put in the work and the resources to gradually improve the group’s quality and consistency. Moisture meters have been donated, Grain Pro has been furnished, and best-practice recommendations have been made. As for how well it’s all worked out — the proof is nowhere but the pudding, and for the third year in a row, we’re diggin it.
