Fincamigos is an experimental plantation, located in the mountain range of the Antioquian Andes near the town of Jardín at an altitude of 1830 metres above sea level. The plantation serves as a research site for the cultivation of rare arabica varieties, that’s why our coffee is a blend of exotic varietals such as Tabi, Gesha or Sudan Rume.
The mission of Fincamigos is to research the cultivation of exotic arabica varieties rare in Colombia, all with a sustainable approach that minimizes environmental impact. The plantation is home to such highly sought-after coffee varietals as the low caffeine Laurina which is a naturally occurred mutation of the Bourbon variety, the large-sized Tabi, a hybrid of the Typica, Bourbon and Timor varieties, the Ethiopian heritage Gesha or the forgotten and re-discovered Sudan Rume of South-Sudanese origin. A blend of the latter three varietals makes up our featured micro-lot, which has been processed by the wet method: the cherries were selectively hand-harvested, de-pulped and then wet-fermented for 48 hours. After the fermentation, the coffee was washed and finally dried on raised beds protected by foil tents for 8 days.
