We are excited to announce that you can find this coffee in the UK exclusively at Catalyst Roasters.

This coffee is grown by Javier Quintero at the farm Buena Vista. It is harvested following strict ripeness criteria, floated and hand-sorted to remove any defects.

Cherries are then exposed to 30 hours of underwater fermentation before being pulped, and the parchment is gently washed and then dried in temperature-controlled conditions until ideal moisture content is achieved.

This variety was discovered in Inza, Cauca when a coffee tree was noted to look different from the typical coffee grown in the region. It had a higher yield and was more resistant to insects and defects, so some farmers began to grow this variety. Subsequently, the seeds were studied in a London laboratory, which found the genetics and structure were like Bourbon Aruzi, a variety grown in Ethiopia.

Colombia - Javier Quintero - Aruzi has nuances of melon, treacle, cranberry and floral notes.
