Named after the Laurel trees that grow there Los Laureles is a small farm of only 2.7 hectares that sits high in a valley at an altitude of 1650 metres above sea level. The farmer, Hernan Lopez started by growing sugar cane and gradually introducing coffee until the whole plot was taken over by coffee trees. Hernan is always looking for ways to improve his crop such as selective pruning and a coffee nursery to explore the suitability of different varietals on the farm. This particular example is of the Caturra variety and has a very clean and malic acidity reminiscent of red apple. Backed up with an intense and rich toffee like sweetness and overtones of hazelnut caused by the long fermentation time (around 50 hours) during the washing process. We like this coffee brewed as filter or cafetière to accentuate the clean cup profile.
