Harken Coffee - Mercedes Quintero, Colombia
We've been pretty fortunate to have been able to bring in some really lovely Colombian coffees like the Marisol Urbano and Hugo Melo, and now this selection grown by Mercedes Quintero. We are also happy to have another female producer in our line up.
When tasting this coffee it made us think of toffee, flowers, plum and orange creamsicles because of it's syrupy body and freshness that really made us think of the colour orange.
This coffee is classified as a washed process, but underwent a 26hr wet fermentation, where the cherries were floated in water, before having the fruit removed mechanically and then dried for 10-15 days on drying beds. This fermentation brings out lots of lovely sweetness you don't normally get in a Colombian coffee.
