El Puente | Colombia
El Puente is named for the footbridge over the river near the new El Puente processing facility for coffee from Aromas del Sur farms in the Palestina region of southern Huila. Rodrigo Sanchez and his family produce coffee on their farms and deliver it to El Puente central mill. El Puente is a pilot project supported by community investment in the sustainable development of rural areas.
This lot of El Puente is Honey processed, beginning with a 24-hour fermentation in cherry in the coffee harvest sacks. Next, floaters are removed, and the remaining healthy coffee cherries are depulped to separate the seed from the fruity outer skin of the cherry. The coffee dry ferments in an open tank for another 24 hours before being transferred to the solar dryer for 3-5 days._________________________________________________________________________
