El Vergel Estate is run by Elias and Shady Bayter along with their mother Martha.
The coffees being produced at El Vergel are outstanding and we are super excited to have found them. We had planned to visit them in 2020 but due to COVID, we had to put that trip on hold, although Shady took us for a virtual tour of the farm and processing station and we cannot wait until we are able to visit.
This lot is a Red Bourbon varietal that is named after their mother Martha. The cherries are harvested at peak ripeness before being fermented in an anaerobic environment inside steel tanks for 60 hours. After fermentation the coffee is sun dried for 35 days and then drying is finished mechanically. The coffee is then stored in grain pro bags for 2 months.
This profile is super juicy and showcases amazing acidity balanced by incredible sweetness.
