This coffee was grown by Wilder at his farm El Mirador in San Adolfo, Huila. The coffee was harvested following strict ripeness criteria, floated, and hand-sorted to remove any defects.
The micro-lot is 100% Red Bourbon. Bourbon is a natural mutation of Typica originally found on Reunion Island (which prior to the French revolution was called Bourbon Island )
This Red Bourbon was exposed to a dry aerobic fermentation of 24 hours and then placed inside Grainpro bags for 50 hours maintaining a temperature below 22ºC. Finally, the coffee was pulped, gently washed, and placed on raised beds until ideal moisture content was achieved.

Valentine Peach Bomb!
This limited edition lot was grown by the increasingly famous Jairo Arcila at his Santa Mónica farm in the Quindio region of Colombia.
To begin processing, Jairo takes ripe cherries, places them in GrainPro bags, and adds a generous serving of wine, yeast, and dehydrated peaches. This beautiful mixture then undergoes a dry anaerobic fermentation for 72 hours. After fermentation, the cherries are pulped and spread across raised beds with more peaches to dry.
