Weimar Lasso was born in a coffee-growing family in San Adolfo. At a young age, he left the city to work on some of the best horse breeding farms in Colombia. Years later, after discovering his family was experiencing financial difficulty, he decided to move back to San Adolfo and help the family’s coffee business at El Mirador farm.
This micro-lot from El Mirador is 100% Java and is the second micro lot from Weimar currently on offer from Bell Lane. The Java variety was originally thought to be a Typica selection. But genetic fingerprinting of molecular markers revealed that Java was in fact, a selection from an Ethiopian landrace population called Abysinia. The seeds were taken from Ethiopia to Indonesia where the variety was given the name, Java. In 1991, the varietal was introduced to Costa Rica and by 2010, it made its way into Colombia.
This coffee was processed using anaerobic fermentation. The processing begins with carefully hand-picked ripe cherries. They were then fermented in an anaerobic environment for 40 hours, after which they are pulped and gently washed. Lastly, they are sun-dried until the ideal moisture content was obtained.
