Cup Characteristics: Peach and Fig sweetness, lively Stonefruit acidity with a Creamy body
In only their 3rd year of milling their own coffee, the Delgados have excelled in perfecting the process of producing wonderful coffees. This year we are fortunate to have their fully washed processed coffee where the outer skin is removed using a mechanical de-mucilager eliminating the need for water. The beans having most or their mucilage (pulp) removed are then layed out on raised drying beds under a Solar dryer. The beans are turned by hand every hour for 8 hours a day creating a beautiful creamy body. The care and love that Alexander and Sara put into their farm is evident in the resulting quality of their coffee.

This coffee is a wondeful brew, strong with a fine grind, gold mesh filter and a drip maker.
