THE STORY BEHIND
Finca Microlindo is a mix of variety Colombia F3 (25%) and Caturra (75%), both picked and selected carefully by successful farmer Mario Jaramillo from Tarqui, a small town in the foothills of the Cordillera central of Huila. Mario Jaramillo actually won a prize in the regional 2017 Taza de Tarqui (Cup of Tarqui).
The southern department of Huila is known for its great coffees. The coffee region of Tarquí is wedged between the low-lying valley of the Magdalena River that provides warm updrafts of tropical breezes towards the volcanic mountain slopes covered in smallholder coffee farms.
Many of the farmers of Tarqui know how to work carefully and are experimenting with fermentation techniques to improve the sweetness of their coffees. Mario Jaramillo dry-ferment his coffee 24 hours before washing. This results in a very nice sweet profile with some red fruits and sugary notes.
