From Clifton Coffee:
Dona Luz Mila is 38 years old manages her families farm, Bella Vista, which is within the indigenous reserve and are now honey processing all of their coffee. Her family hails from the towns of Aponte and Paramo, deep in the Juanambu canyon. This group belonged to the norternmost part of the Inca Empite. The Canyon itself is located in the municipality of Buesaco. Although Buesaco was founded in the early 1700s, its history becomes interesting during Colombia’s war of independence. Nariño became famous as one of the few states in Colombia that sided heavily with the crown instead of the independence armies.
In true rebel form, Dona Luz has processed this small lot using the honey method. The coffee was pulped and then dried before being washed. The intense fermentation process that occurs when coffee is dried with out removing the mucilage leads to a cup profile with intense fruits.
