We are very happy to find Pastor Ordonez's coffee for the third time on our menu! Pastor represents the third generation of coffee growers in his family, who were among the first to start growing coffee in the region. Now 50 years old, Pastor Ordonez has dedicated his entire life to growing coffee and is now recognized as one of the most respected producers in the region. Following family tradition, his farm started production with around 4,000 trees of the Caturra variety. A variety which, together with the Typica, was extremely common in the time of Pastor's parents. Today, Pastor cultivates trees of different varieties, including the magnificent Bourbon Rose, which gives us this incredible sweet and refreshing coffee.
We present you this coffee under the Colectivo label. Coffees represented under this label come from the Monkaaba collective in Colombia. Producer Esnaider Ortega-Gomez is leading this program. It offers producers in the region access to the specialty market and aims to deepen their knowledge, quality and profitability of their product, through educational support. The Pista team is very honored to find this incredible coffee, as well as the talented Pastor Ordonez through this Colectivo series. This year again we owe this collaboration with the Monkaaba collective to our partner Semilla Coffee.
Grown at an altitude of around 1800 meters, this coffee is made from the Bourbon rose variety. It is picked when fully ripe and sorted by flotation first, then by hand, in order to remove the cherries that are too ripe or not ripe enough. It is then placed in the mechanical pulper for 12 hours before being mechanically pulped and dry-fermented for . Then it is washed 3 to 5 times under a stream of water to remove the remaining mucilage, before being slowly dried on raised beds for 8 to 30 days. Its delicate profile and medium roast make this coffee a perfect espresso or filter option.
This very sweet and floral coffee tastes like red grapes and lime, on a finish reminiscent of brown sugar.
