Eusebio Arteaga in San Ramón, Peru
Finca Sorgo Negro – La Balsa is a 4 hectare farm owned by the family of Eusebio Arteaga Coronel near the village of San Ramón, Peru. Sorgo Negro is named after the long purple grass which grows on the farm. Perched high above the village of San Ramón and looking out over one of the tributaries of the Cerro Negro river, Eusebio has taken over the running of the farm from his father Xavier, who in turn was taught to cultivate coffee by his father. After the coffee is harvested, it is de-pulped the same day or the following day, depending on when it is delivered to the wet mill. It's fermented for 18 hours dry, then washed three times to remove the mucilage. The coffee is dried on raised beds, under shade for 15-20 days.
We’re tasting tangy fruit acidity, caramel, lemon, and cooked fruit.
