This is our first time to be able to feature this variety. This coffee comes from the farm of Wilson Roldan in Caicedo, Antioquia. A tiny lot he processed as a natural. drying the coffee in the fruit. We purchased all 35lb of this coffee, most of which was sent to our Rare Coffees Tour Subscribers.
