Carnaval is an homage to the coffee producing nation of Colombia where each harvest is celebrated and producers treat coffee as a sacred crop with a devotion and dedication. The coffee is harvested between 1,850 and 2,200 meters above sea level throughout the year thanks to Buesaco’s elevation and latitude. Some producers have inherited farms and others have purchased their plots. Producers fertilize two or three times a year, and most farms are between 6 and 18 years old. Each producer owns a farm between 5 and 10 hectares planted with Caturra, Colombia and Castillo varieties.
Producers pick the ripest cherries, hand sort, ferment for 12 hours after picking, depulp, and ferment for another 12 hours to bring complex, citric, juicy, and floral notes to their coffee. Coffee is dried for at least 12-15 days in the shade.
This coffee is from Monumental Market in Jamaica Plain, MA. It is a BIPOC owned business.
