Colombia Luz Helena Salazar | carbonic maceration
This coffee was grown by Luz Helena Salazar at the farm Maracay. This lot was exposed to aerobic fermentation for 24 hours. Later, coffee was placed inside grainpro bags for 50 hours maintaining a temperature below 22 ºC and adding CO2. Later, coffee was placed on raised beds at a temperature below 35 ºC until ideal moisture content was achieved.
This micro-lot is 100% Pink Bourbon. This varietal is currently under research in order to determine its origin. It is said that it is a mutation that took place at 2100 m.a.s.l in San Adolfo, Huila.
Luz Helena is the mother of Felipe and Carlos Arcila who are the co-founders of Cofinet. Luz has always been an incredible advocate for coffee, even from an early age. She grew up in Armenia, Quindio, which is part of the coffee triangle in Colombia. The coffee triangle used to be the highest coffee producing region in Colombia. This particular lot comes from Finca Maracay, a farm that is 8 hectares in size and is located in Armenia. Luz Helena not only manages her own coffee farm, she has also manages other farms that produce commodities such as avocados and oranges.
