  • We are pleased to welcome this delicious Washed Caturra microlot from a new producer for Dukes in 2021, Sr. Anderson Becerra Castillo, which was harvested at his farm Finca La Miranda across two picking periods in January and February 2021. Located in the stunning, rugged terrain of the central mountain range in Tolima, La Miranda is a small 5 hectare family / subsistence coffee farm that produces only about 200 bags of coffee per year alongside a small crop of corn, beans and casava. At 1,660 meters above sea level, La Miranda is in an ideal geographic position to produce top quality coffee, and Sr. Becerra capitalises on this by growing Organic, Fair Trade and Rainforrest Alliance certified coffee as his main income. This lot is a 100% Caturra, which has been hand picked and washed on site at Sr. Becerra’s micro-mill.

  • We are pleased to welcome this delicious Washed Caturra microlot from a new producer for Dukes in 2021, Sr. Anderson Becerra Castillo, which was harvested at his farm Finca La Miranda across two picking periods in January and February 2021. Located in the stunning, rugged terrain of the central mountain range in Tolima, in a valley carved by the Siquila River, La Miranda is a small 5 hectare family / subsistence coffee farm that produces only about 200 bags of coffee per year alongside a small crop of corn, beans and casava. At 1,660 meters above sea level, La Miranda is in an ideal geographic position to produce top quality coffee, and Sr. Becerra capitalises on this by growing Organic, Fair Trade and Rainforrest Alliance certified Caturra, Castilla and Geisha varieties. This lot is a 100% Caturra, which has been hand picked and washed on site at Sr. Becerra’s micro-mill. 

    Sr. Becerra is a member of a FairTrade and Organic certified cooperative located in the town of Bilbao, Tolima. Being Certified Organic by ECOCERT means that Anderson does not and cannot use any industrial or chemical inputs, fertilizers, or pesticides on his farm. Instead, he uses a combination of compost generated from the pulped coffee cherries, as well as Bio Preparations that are applied to his coffee trees that are intercropped with naturally nitrogen fixing crops such as legumes, beans and yuca. 

    Sr. Becerra produces compost on-site from green waste as well as animal and household organic waste, and practices stringent picking, sorting and processing practices with team of 5 who work alongside him at peak harvest times. Robinson aims for 90% of all hand picked cherries to be at peak ripeness, with hand sorting prior to fermentation carried out as standard. All cherries are dry-fermented in cherry for 16 hours before pulping, followed by 24 hours of dry fermentation in mucilage in an open air fermentation tank. After fermentation, the coffee is washed using clean water from the farm’s on-site spring before being dried for 15 days on covered, raised drying beds.
