El Divinto is the name for this crafted micro selection which comes from various smallholders who are members of Coocentral (Cooperative in Central Huila). Coocentral is doing a smallholder project in cooperation with Nordic Approach to
improve the quality of the coffee and livelihoods of the producers in this region, and this coffee is a beautiful example of what they can produce.
Coffees are picked in 3 to 4 passes; the first and last passes are of lower quality, and the middle selection will be considered as the best, with more ripe cherries and uniform quality. This lot comes from parchment harvested in the second and third
passes. The picked coffees then processed with traditional washed process, pulped and fermented. The coffees are stirred in tanks or small channels before removing the floaters. For the ones without channels it’s common to wash the coffees in the fermentation tank and skim off the floaters before it goes to the drying. The coffees are sun dried in parabolic dryers that almost works as green houses. Coffees are dried down to below 11% in 10-18 days with good ventilation facilities to ensure even and
long drying, for cup consistency.
Intense red grape flavour, long lingering sugarcane finish, and a hint of cherry tomato note when the coffee is warm.
