El Vergel Anaerobic Geisha
Finca El Vergel is located in Algeciras Huila, Colombia, and run by the Rozo family. The farm is located at a very high altitude – 1920 meters – and consists of 68 hectares of land; 15 of these are planted with coffee-trees.
A few years ago, each sibling inherited a piece of land and one of the sons – Robinson – decided to invest in planting 100% Geisha trees, this lot comes from these trees.
In this particular micro-lot, the coffee was first dried on African open beds for 24 hours before the cherries were placed in closed barrels for 70 hours; a so-called anaerobic fermentation. The pressure that is then formed, forces the natural fruit acid and juice found in the berries into the coffee beans. The method creates great taste complexity and the result is a delicious coffee with a character of caramel, peach, blueberry and tropical fruit.
