La Palma y el Tucan was one of the first farms I ever visited; it sits in a beautiful misty mountainous forest surrounded by eucalyptus groves. The fog rolls in early each evening and out late each morning, creating an otherworldly environment. When I first visited, Felipe and Elisa outlined a clear and ambitious vision, but I couldn't have imagined the extent to which they would impact coffee through the next ten years!
Their farm is now one of the foremost experimental farms for biodiversity, and they embrace an abundance of life mentality at their farm - literally. Instead of working against nature they use natural strategies to ensure plant health and cherry quality. This approach shines through in their geishas; with vibrant and lively fruit notes and refreshing clarity in the cup!
Bio Innovation process: Ripe Geisha Cherries are sealed into clay pots with micro-organisms collected from the forest floor. They are then buried in a cool are and a unique fermentation takes over. This unmatched marriage of terroir and variety results in a wildly curious profile with Blood Orange and Strawberry Rhubarb notes.
Lactic Process: Freshly harvest cherries are pre-fermented in an oxygen-free environment. This results in a high presence of lactic acid (think: milk stout) and a wonderful balancing of the Geisha profile without muting the cup. Notes of: Bing Cherry, Ripe Mandarine, and Honeycrisp Apple
