Quality Report - Colombia El Indio Caturra Natural

About This Coffee

This coffee was carefully hand-picked in order to use only the ripest cherries, later hand sorted to remove any defects. Coffee is sundried on raised beds under temperature-controlled conditions until the ideal moisture content is achieved.

This microlot is 100% Caturra. This variety originated in Minas Gerais, Brazil. It is a natural mutation of Red Bourbon. Caturra produces more coffee and is more resistant to plant diseases than Bourbon.
