Product Description

Located in the temperate climate and mountainous terrain of southwest Antoquia, Finca Las Mercedes has the perfect altitude and climate for producing excellent quality coffee as well as playing host to a diversity of native flora and fauna. In this ideally situated terrain, the Guerra family have dedicated 150 of their 384 extensive hectares to coffee. The rest of the farm lies under native forest – some 234 hectares devoted entirely as nature and watershed preserve.

One strategy in the farm’s move towards speciality coffee has been to invest a great deal of time and energy into processing and lot differentiation. These efforts increase every year, and with the ideal natural conditions of Las Mercedes – including the elevation and climatic conditions - we expect the quality of Las Mercedes’ coffees (already very high) to only improve in the coming years. This ‘La Isla’ (the Island) lot is an ideal example of the dividends paying off!

La Isla lot is one of the oldest lots at Las Mercedes. Its 9 hectares are planted under 100% Caturra, a variety well suited to the plot’s high altitude of 1,700 and 1,900 metres above sea level.

This La Isla lot has been selectively hand harvested before being delivered to Las Mercedes’ state-of-the-art mill to be pulped on the same day. After pulping the coffee is fermented twice! The first fermentation is anaerobic, occurring at cool temperatures for 25 hours. Afterwards, the coffee is fermented aerobically for an additional 25 hours before being fully washed, graded by weight and delivered to dry in African beds, where it is regularly turned until it reaches optimal humidity.

The farm’s diligent environmental and social practices have led them to achieve Rainforest Alliance, UTZ Kapeh and 4C certification.

La Mercedes la Isla lot is very sweet and bright, with notes of plum & lemon, very smooth mouthfeel and clean cup. Top quality Colombia.
