Colombia's select coffee Luis Jose Valdes from The Naughty Dog roastery is characterized by tones of red wine and chocolate pralines with liqueur.
Finca La Cristalina is located in Bajo Espanol in Chinchina, Caldas. This farm has been part of the Valdez family for three generations, with Luiz's grandparents as the first owners. Luiz took control of the 21-hectare farm in 1999 and bought it from his father and uncles. The farm has about 142,000 trees, which are Caturra, Castillo, Columbia and Pink Bourbon.
We bought a lot from Luisa, which is a mixture of 3 varieties. He used an experimental method for this mixture - after removing the "floaters" of cherries in the tanks, they sealed the whole cherries in barrels for 12-15 hours overnight. Only then did the cherries dry using the dry method.
