Carbon negative coffee



This coffee was grown by Luis Anibal Calderon at the farm Villa Betulia. It was exposed to a dry aerobic fermentation of 24 hours, then placed inside Grainpro bags for 50 hours, maintaining a temperature below 22 degrees. Finally, the coffee was pulped, gently washed, and placed on raised beds until ideal moisture content was achieved.

We’re happy to be showcasing a Washed Gesha on our Rare and Acclaimed offering, the first for quite some time. Expect the classic varietal characteristics of floral jasmine and lemongrass, complemented by juicy grape and stone fruit flavours.

In 2012, Luis Anibal planted 5,000 Gesha trees. He had to wait an arduous three years for the plants to begin bearing fruit. This first harvest was very successful, and helped Luis receive substantial premiums for his coffee, which meant his farm could finally be sustainable.

After the success of the Gesha, in 2015 Luis Anibal decided to pivot his whole farm towards exotic coffee varieties. In early 2016, Luis met Felipe, one of the founders of Cofinet – and the instant Felipe tried Luis Anibal’s coffees, he was hooked. Felipe began continuously purchasing his microlots of Castillo, Caturra and Gesha, and in 2018 – with the help of Cofinet – Luis Anibal had improved his processing techniques to such a standard that Cofinet could commit to every single lot of specialty coffee that he produced.

We don’t label our coffee as espresso or filter. Instead, for each coffee we create a unique roasting profile, designed to bring out the best flavours from its origin, farm and milling method. That’s why, instead, we label our coffee based on the experience it brings to the cup.
