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

Forward has purchased 5 x 35kg bags of Marcela Castellanos Natural EF2 Yellow Bourbon.

Grown by Marcela Castellanos at Finca Mayorca, nearby to 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 EF2 Yellow Bourbon, as well as a Natural Orange Wush Wush.

This lot was carefully hand-picked and hand-sorted. It was exposed to a dry anaerobic fermentation in plastic tanks for 24 hours, then placed inside GrainPro bags and fermented again for 30 hours inside a water tank that held a consistent temperature of 22C. Following these sophisticated fermentations, this coffee was dried for 14 days in raised beds.
