About:El Zafiro (The Sapphire) is an absolute gem. Located in the Central and Western mountain ranges the temperature remains between 12-28 degrees Celcius, ideal for the slow maturation of coffee cherries. The farm has existed for close to 100 years and has for most of that time been tended toby Nancy’s family who are indigenous to the land. Today the land is managed by Nancy, her husband Oscar, and their loyal dog Trotsky.The Castillo variety was developed in Colombia to combat the leaf rust epidemic across the country. Nancy and Oscar planted it on El Zafiro 30 years ago, after leaf rust decimated the vulnerable Bourbon and Typica trees they originally had growing. Processed via the honey method this lot has and enhanced sweetness, notes of yellow stone fruit, and a thick mouthfeel.
