Mr. Pablo Guerrero was the first to introduce coffee to the Tangua area outside of the city of Pasto in the year 2000. HaciendaElObrajehas been in Pablo’s family for many years and originally produced wheat and other grains. By 2009, Pablo had built a facility to process his own coffee and entered the specialty coffee market.
The climate and terrain ofObrajeare major contributing factors to its coffee’s unique cup profile. Temperatures vary greatly in a day, from 32 degrees Celsius at noon to 8 degrees or less at night. Obrajeis located near many volcanic mountains and the rocky soil is filled with minerals. The hundred-hectare HaciendaElObrajeis a truly stunning property in the mountains of the Nariño, with coffee planted on the slopes descending to a river valley. El Obraje’s wet mill on the property is extremely tidy and includes tile fermentation tanks, depulping equipment, mechanical oven dryers, and raised drying beds under a solar dryer. Coffee processing begins as soon as the cherries are harvested.
Tasting notes of mango, orange, and very juicy texture.
