Quality Report - Colombia La Esperanza Tres Dragones Natural


About This Coffee

Tres Dragones is named after three furnaces used to dry coffee on the Potosi farm. Sparks from the furnaces caused a fire that burned down the farmhouse. The farm is located in Caicedonia and spans 52 hectares, with 34 hectares dedicated to producing the Colombia variety. This variety is a hybrid of Hybrid-de-Timor and Caturra, offering resistance to rust and high yield potential. After being fermented for 19-22 hours, the coffee is pulped and fermented again for 35 hours. It is then left to dry for 48 hours in a silo before being transferred to solar driers for approximately 15 days of rest.
