A full bodied and creamy cup that shines when made with the v60. Higher brew temps help get the most out of this dense coffee and with a ratio of 1:16 and a brew time of 3 to 3:30 minutes, you'll be immersed in a mix of dark fruit acidity and rich chocolates.

Processing Info

Natural coffees are hard to produce at Finca Alcatraz. Consistently cool cloud cover keeps drying on the slow side, which increases risk of damage to the cherry throughout the process. Through careful attention, Don Wilfredo is able to pull off some incredibly clean naturals.

This mix of red and yellow Caturra was harvested in December 2022 and was put directly to dry after being picked. It was dried in a combination of parabolic and raised beds for 30 days.
