This special coffee from producer Auricel Conde is endorsed by Padre Coffee's Good Coffee Doing Good initiative. Altdrop will donate $1 from every 250g sold towards the Good Coffee Doing Good initiative.

This coffee was sourced through Padre's Colombian green bean partners, Cofinet. Padre Coffee have worked with Cofinet for over five years now and greatly respect their commitment to improving the quality of Colombian coffees. They actively seek out great producers, and then share their skills and knowledge to help these producers further improve their coffees, leading to better outcomes across the board.
Auricel Conde from Finca La Primavera participated in Cofinet’s internship program in 2018 and has been producing incredible coffees since. We’re proud to feature two of Auricel’s delicious coffees. They are the same Castillo varietal processed two different ways - honey and washed. Getting to taste these side by side provides a great insight into the ways that processing affects the flavour in the cup.
Honey process is somewhat of a hybrid method, somewhere between washed and natural. After picking, the cherry is put through mill that removes the skin and some of the sticky, honey-like mucilage (hence the name) that surrounds the bean. The coffee is then laid out to dry, with the remaining mucilage surrounding the bean. This leads to a coffee that can possess the best characteristics of washed coffees - clarity and acidity - along with those of natural coffees - body and fruitiness.
