Mildred and her husband Wilfredo Estevez Molina own the small 2.2 ha farm called Don Joaquin. For the past 5 years they to improve the quality of their coffees after learning from the Aruco mill technicians about ways to improve their cup scores. In the harvest they work together with their 4 sons to collect the cherries, selecting only the ripe ones. From here, the coffee is then taken to the Aruco mill just outside of Corquin for processing.

They decided to process at the Aruco mill to centralise and have greater control over the process, to create consistent procedures and also to reduce the risk. The mill is also at 800 masl. which gives a more stable climate to dry the coffee, compared to up at the farm where the weather can be less predictable.

When delivered to the mill where they assess the cherry and decide on the process for the coffees depending on space and what the producer has done already. The cherry is cleaned and washed and then floated to remove any immature cherries. This lot is processed in the Natural Anaerobic Fermentation - the coffee cherries are placed in stainless steel tanks for 48 hours. The natural lactic bacteria develops yeasts that break down the sugars in the pulp, fermenting the coffee and producing lactic acid, which beautifully complements the acidity of the coffee.

Roast info

This coffee is roasted for filter - meaning, a light roast. We roast our seasonal coffees in this manner because we wish for the coffee to shine as it is - for it to display the characteristics that have produced its excellent quality. This kind of roast allows the natural flavours, acids and sugars of the coffee to be in the front, and lets you learn about its origin through taste. As the name says, it's best used in filter coffee methods, such as drip or immersion, so while making an espresso from these is possible, it could prove tricky.

Use and storage

We recommend you enjoy this coffee within 3 months of the roasting date.
Store in a dry and cool place, between +16 and +25 degrees.
