Colombia - Gustavo De Jesus Rivera - Finca El Retiro
Tasting Notes: Guava, Lime, Gooseberry, Butterscotch
Finca “El Retiro” is located in the sub- municipality of El Hato, within the municipality of Caicedo. The name of the farm translates to “the retirement”. This farm belongs to producer Gustavo De Jesus Rivera and he is part of the CoopSalgar association in Antioquia. His farm is one of the highest farms in Colombia. Although El Hato has a very low temperature range, farmers are able to produce coffee at such high altitudes. Due to the cold temperature of the water Gustavo uses to ferment, he can mix different days of picking and leave coffee fermenting for longer than what is usual in washed coffees.
