This coffee comes from 36 producers in the Garzon municipality of the Huila province. Only ripe cherries were picked, and the beans were fermented (for varying amounts of time, depending on the altitude of each farm) and then washed and dried on patios and in some cases also drying silos. The parchment was delivered to the Garzon buying station between August and early September 2017; the dedicated dry milling process took place the first week of December; and the coffee was shipped the first half of January 2018.
