This offering comes from Finca Las Flores and is brought to us thanks to our partnership with Cofinet. Finca Las Flores is a 14.5 hectare farm in the city of Acevedo in the Huila department and is grown by Johan Vergara. The Ayure family started their farm in 1990 with 18,000 coffee trees. Each year they continued to grow until they reached 90,000 coffee trees.
In 1961, Colombia’s Coffee Research Institute, Cenicafé, began research and field trials with Hibrido de Timor. By 1968, the same organization had combined the Timor hybrid with the popular Caturra cultivar. By 2002, Cenicafé introduced the Tabi cultivar: a variety obtained by crossing Typica, Bourbon, and Timor Hybrid. One of the most important attributes is its resistance to coffee leaf rust, but it also displays the good cup quality characteristics of its Bourbon and Typica parents. Tabi means “good” in the Guambiano (a native Colombian tribe) dialect, but we think this coffee is beyond good.
This microlot was exposed to anaerobic fermentation for 25 hours after being pulped and dried on concrete patios until the ideal moisture content was reached. While fermentation is, by its nature, an anaerobic process, the term “anaerobic fermentation” refers specifically to fermentation that occurs in a custom-built, oxygen-free environment, such as a sealed container or tank. This process allows producers to create coffees that have greater complexity and quality, which in turn command premium pricing.
In a cup of Tabi Anaerobic, you’ll find notes of tart berries, honey, and milk chocolate paired with sparkling acidity and silky mouthfeel. Grab a bag of this small batch and experience the various varieties the world of coffee offers.
