This lot has been prepared under high-quality standards set by El Borbollon mill that has more than one hundred years of experience growing and exporting coffees. The mill is situated just outside of the town of Santa Ana surrounded by the Apaneca- Ilamatepec Mountain range. This region is known for producing consistent and clean sweet cup coffees. This lot comes from the Red Bourbon variety grown on the slopes of the Apaneca-Ilamatepec Mountain Range. The excellent growing conditions and the commitment to developing sustainable practices help us to harvest the best coffee cherries. El Borbollon has been excelling the art of blending coffees from origin that achieve parameters desired by the specialty coffee community.

The coffee is picked and separated before it is delivered to the El Borbollon mill where it is pulped on arrival, the cherries are emptied into tanks and water is used to move the cherries up a pump and into a depulper to remove the skin of the cherry from the beans. The beans are then moved in channels to fermentation tanks where they will rest for 13 to 15 hours and naturally present bacteria and microbes break down the sugars and alcohols in the mucilage of the bean. They are then washed again before being transported to the drying patio where they are then dried for a period of 8-10 days.
