The mountainous Caicedonia region borders the department of Quindío, where Finca Corinto, Jaime Gonzalez's farm, is located. At 60 years old, he has become well versed in his tried and tested methods of drying for several years, and is no stranger to the production of naturals on his farm. Following the picking, sorting, and washing, Gonzalez has a greenhouse system dedicated exclusively to the drying of his naturally processed Castillo harvest.
For this Red Honey-processed coffee, some of the cherry pulp is removed before drying to better contain and control the fermentation of the sugars present. This allows some cleaner flavours to come through without losing out on the more fruity, boozier flavours possible only through natural processing, where all the cherry excepting the skin is retained during drying. Here, this carefully chosen processing shows itself in the spicy note of ginger in the cup coupled with an almost sparkling pink lemonade note.
