Jansons’ first farm Hacienda Cafetalera was established in 1941, originally a cattle farm by Carl Axel Janson, an immigrant from Sweden. Since then, they’ve founded another farm Los Alpes, their own nursery and beneficio (processing plant), which was built in 1993. The beneficio is dedicated only for specialty coffee, which helps to keep different lots separated from each other. The Jansons are also committed to improving and protecting the environment. Energy is produced by 400 solar panels, excess matter from processing is used as fertilizer and water for washed processing comes from their own springs.
This coffee is of the gesha variety, and it’s grown at Los Alpes farm. The volcanic soil, the altitude of 1800 meters and the special microclimate in between the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans combined with optimal care of the gesha plants result in high quality cherries that are then hand-picked and processed with the best practices and latest knowledge about fermentation and drying. The result is an elegant, complex and luxurious profile that we’ve all been accustomed to knowing and love gesha from.
This lot goes through a 72 hours fermentation in grainpro bags which are turned every 12 hours, with a 3 days sun patio, 2 days reposo and 8 days african beds, a total of 13 days drying.
