This gem of a microlot of the Caturra and Colombia varietal is produced by Hugo Sepulveda from Urrao, Antioquia. Over the course of two days, each day’s pulped cherries are added to a fermentation tank with the previous days’ pickings. In this method of ‘extended’ fermentation, each consecutive batch raises the ph level (i.e. makes more alkaline) of the fermentation tank, permitting longer fermentation times that will produce a fruit-forward cup but without the acetic acid produced by bacteria at a low ph. In this way, the producer is able to maintain the correct ph level and avoid very low ph levels during processing that can lead to over-fermentation and vinegary qualities. In addition to giving more control over ph levels also gives more control over yeast and bacteria activity. Interestingly, the practice is common with small farmers throughout Antioquia and Huila, who often have two or three day fermentation as their farms are so small that one day’s picking is often not sufficient to make up an entire lot. Don Hugo works with these traditional methods, but puts extra attention into making sure every step is perfectly executed.

Finca La Primavera is a very small farm even by local standards at only 1.5 hectares. This only means that Hugo has had to work extra hard throughout his life to make the farm as productive as possible. This hasn’t stopped him from smiling, however! Don Hugo receives you with a smile every single time you visit, and that smile tends never to fade away throughout your stay at la Primavera. As an original member of the Pavón group, Don Hugo has been crucial in helping Pablo Emilio Montoya (the group’s leader) keep the group cohesive and working together.  Hugo is famous amongst his neighbours for the attention he puts into both cultivation and processing so as to ensure his crop receives the best placement possible on the market.

Finca La Primavera was our April 2021 Roaster's Choice Subscription single origin coffee and this coffee was enjoyed by all our subscribers who have had the first taste of it then. A consistent cup with a good structure, sweet and great clarity from hot to cold. We are sure you will enjoy it too. Cheers!
