It's been a couple years since we've had La Pradera on offer and we are super excited that it's back for another year. We absolutely love Colombian Geshas!
The Gesha Variety is highly sought after these days for it's unique flavour profiles and chewy mouthfeel. This one reminds me of drinking a chamomile tea, sweetened with a good amount of honey creating a big syrupy body. With some soft orange flavour and acidity this cup is very easy to drink.
From the Importer:

Dionel Chilito Lopez owns a 10-hectare farm called La Pradera, where he has 3 hectares planted with coffee. Dionel comes from a coffee-producing family, and like many other farmers, he got his start when his father gave him a small piece of land to plant 2,000 Caturra trees. These days he has replaced his Caturra with Gesha trees, with very positive results!

The cherries at La Pradera are harvested when they have ripened to a purple color, then they are depulped the same day in a traditional depulperand sorted using a zaranda. The coffee is fermented dry for 36 hours and washed two or three times before being dried on parabolic driers for 16–18 days.
