The Anaerobic Honey Process: Elevating Colombian Coffee

At the heart of Finca La Luisa’s coffee production lies the anaerobic honey process, a technique that revolutionises the flavour and profile of the coffee. This method, meticulously executed under Vélez’s guidance, involves fermenting the coffee beans in fruit juice, with a unique twist – the infusion of kiwi. This imparts a distinctive character to the coffee, accentuating notes of tropical fruit and honey sweetness in every sip.

Journey from Crop to Cup: From Red Caturra Variety to Filter Brewing

The journey begins with the Red Caturra variety, meticulously cultivated at altitudes ranging from 1,600 to 1,800 meters on the slopes of Antioquia. This elevation, coupled with the region’s fertile soil and ideal climate, bestows upon the coffee beans their exceptional quality and flavour.

Upon harvesting, the coffee cherries undergo a meticulous preparation process, embracing the honey processing technique. This method, endorsed by the Mission Red certification, involves removing the outer skin of the cherries while leaving a sticky residue of mucilage intact. This sticky coating, akin to honey, imparts a luscious sweetness to the beans during fermentation.

Once processed, the beans undergo a carbonic maceration process in stainless steel tanks, further enhancing their flavour profile. Fermenting the coffee in fruit juice, in this particular selection with kiwi, is unique. This meticulous approach to coffee processing ensures that each cup of Finca La Luisa’s Single Estate Coffee becomes a flavourful experience.
