El Fuerte Lactic SL28




Bruised plums, Blackberry, Red grape

El Fuerte was a first experiment in developing coffee in a region that has excellent characteristics for producing amazing quality coffee (good soil conditions and high altitude), but which traditionally sees little coffee production and produces no specialty coffee. The decision to plant coffee at El Fuerte was something of a risk, but it's one that has undoubtedly paid off. The location has proved to be strategic and the weather is ideal; so much so that a second wet mill will soon be established at the site. This lot features a Kenyan variety that’s been naturally processed, resulting in a fruit forward cup.
