Colombia Huila Alirio Munoz (Filter 250 gram)
Origin: Alirio Muñoz
Alirio Muñoz ferments his coffee under water for 36-40 hours, before washing it in clean water. Drying is done on raised beds, with an average drying time of 22-25 days, which is quite long for Colombia. The main harvest period for Alirio is from September to January, and the “mitaka” (fly crop) is in June. He has 25% Caturra trees, and 75% Castillo.
Drying in Huila is a big challenge. In general, it is done in parabolic dryers to cover it from the rain, and during drying the producers hand sort the parchment coffee for impurities and defects. By receiving premium payments, the producers can improve their facilities, by building new or reconstruct the dryers to increase ventilation and potentially add shade nets to slower drying, and hence improve the quality and longevity of the coffee.
