Arrived September 8th, 2021 to Calgary Warehouse in Calgary, AB

Forward has purchased a 1 x 35kg box of Marcela Castellanos Natural EF1 Orange Wush Wush.

Six (6) kilos have been booked by Prototype Coffee in Vancouver, BC.

Grown by Marcela Castellanos at Finca Mayorca, near the capital of the Quindio department, Armenia, this is the first time Forward has featured offerings from Marcela Castellanos, purchased through offer samples from our friends and partners at Cofinet.

Marcela and her husband, both doctors by trade, are most passionate about their coffee-growing business. Together they've been growing coffee for 15 years, with distinct coffee varieties, such as Wush Wush, Orange Bourbon, Pink Bourbon, Yellow Bourbon, and Castillo. This season, we're proud to feature this Natural Wush Wush, as well as a Natural EF2 Yellow Bourbon.

This lot was picked following strict ripeness criteria and hand-sorted prior to fermentation. The cherries were then left to ferment inside plastic tanks for 42 hours. Following these sophisticated fermentations, this coffee was dried for 14 days in raised beds.
