This year, El Recuerdo represents the hard work of Carlos Guamanga and his quest to improve the coffee he’s producing. With support from us, farming practices have been further refined, including more selective picking and sorting, experimental fermentation processes and greater control with drying conditions.
With several more lots on the way, we’re very happy to be showcasing a Colombian producer who is perfecting his craft.
This lot is very complex with notes of dark berries and red apple in the finish, clean and elegant as always, a great representation of Caturra variety.
