We have been working with the Urrita family for over 7 years.
This year we brought 49,000MT of speciality coffees from Monte Sion Estate.
Also included this year is a small Top of Top grade lot from Monte Sion Estate.
We have just cupped the lot ‘Fresh Apricot, caramel finish, silky body’ a few descriptions from the cupping session.
Think the below from Lilliana Narvez is great for explaining how they manage Monte Sion Estate and grade the different lots.
"We provide the same nutrition and care to all the farms regardless of altitude; all cherries are picked at the ripe stage… The time frame in which we start picking depends on the altitude of the farm: The higher the altitude, the longer it takes for the cherry to mature. Monte Sion farm (1200+masl) has its picking period between December and Mid-February. We process all our Gourmets, SHG’s and Tops in the same way: semi washed and sun dried on patios. The classification of our coffee is based on cupping results: sweetness, acidity profile, brightness, aftertaste etc."
