Manifiesto SAN CARLOS
|Region||San Carlos, Antioquia, Colombia|
|Variety||Castillo Caturra Chiroso Colombia Tabi Cenicafe1|
|Notes||Dark chocolate, roasted almonds, butter sweet|
In our Manifiesto line, we use coffees produced by communities that were victims of the armed conflict. San Carlos in Antioquia is a region which is hard to reach and in the past was notoriously affected by the presence of the guerillas, making it hard to produce coffee and work on improving quality. The profile of the San Carlos coffee produced by Edwin Giraldo, a very meticulous producer, showcases a balance cup with dark chocolate, roasted almonds and great sweetness - making this a multi-purpose lot ideal for both espresso and filter coffee.
This coffee was wet processed. This means that first the coffee cherries or the outer skin of the coffee beans were removed by means of a machine. Afterwards the bean with its leftover mucilage was fermented for a number of hours in water to ensure that it can be entirely removed.
.For filter, we recommend a preparation with 50 grams of coffee, grinding medium coarse, adding 620 millilitres of water and leaving 3.20 minutes to extract. For espresso, we recommend grinding 18 gr of coffee at a fine espresso setting. Measure 36 - 40 g of brewed liquid in your cup in 24 - 32 seconds.
