Subtext - Francy Castillo Espresso: Washed, Colombia (250g)
Francy comes from a humble coffee producing family. She recently graduated with a degree in Agricultural Engineering, and she’s worked with the Colombian Coffee Federation- at just 27 years old, she represents a generational change in coffee. Francy and her family work hard to manage their farm in a way that protects soils and keeps her trees healthy without requiring the use of too many synthetic chemical inputs. The coffee plot is the work of the entire family. Her processing starts with picking ripe cherries, followed by an initial cherry ferment, before de-pulping the coffee with the hand-cranked de-pulper.
