Cherries at Diofanor’s farm are picked following a strict ripeness criteria. This microlot was exposed to a double anaerobic fermentation: 40 hours before pulping and 20 hours after pulping in ceramic tanks. Later the coffee is dried in mechanical driers to 10.5% moisture content.
Diofanor has worked as a farm administrator for 20 years and 18 years ago he started managing his family property, Finca La Divisa. Diofanor aims to not use any chemicals on his farm where possible and since 2014 he has not used any herbicides or pesticides. He grows all of his coffee under shade and only occasionally applies small amounts of fertilizer to his coffee plantation.
This microlot is 100% Castillo. This variety was developed by the Federacion de Nacional Cafeteros (FNC) to be more productive and leaf rust resistant than Caturra.
With the guidance of Cofinet Diofanor produced his first extended fermentation washed lots in 2018.
