Finca Los Jazmines, Colombia
Country of Origin
Finca Los Jazmines is Jose Lizardo Alba’s ten-hectare farm in Palestina, Huila in the south of Colombia. Seven hectares of the farm are planted in about 27,000 coffee trees of several varieties—primarily Bourbon, Colombia, Castillo, Caturra, and Geisha. This Pink Bourbon lot was hand-picked and sorted, then de-pulped and fermented anaerobically for around 76 hours. After washing, the beans are dried in a greenhouse for 18 to 20 days to promote slow, even drying. Lizardo’s meticulous work in post-harvest processing pays off in a remarkably sweet, clean, and complex coffee with bright acidity and notes of tropical fruit, citrus, and jasmine.
