We have been working with Pergamino for quite a while now, and it is an honor to work with this Chiroso separation straight from Pedro's personal farm. In the cup we find tropical fruits, subtle florality, and singing acidity. ABOUT FINCA VERACRUZ Veracruz is part of the Pergamino family of farms. It has a very cold and wet microclimate, and for many years was the least productive of their farms. It wasn't until recently, when they started to learn more about producing quality coffee, that they realized that the small lots from Veracruz consistently cupped better than lots from their other farms. Since this breakthrough, they have changed the varieties on the farm from Castillo and V. Colombia to Gesha and Chiroso. ABOUT CHIROSO Chiroso is a new variety being grown primarily in the region of Antioquia, Colombia. We only started hearing about its cultivation a couple of years ago, but because of its cup quality potential it is beginning to spread. The variety has been genetically identified as an Ethiopian Landrace, but we unfortunately cannot get any more specific than that at this time. We have been working very hard building a buying program in the region of Urrao specifically around the variety of Chiroso. We still don't know where or how this variety came to be cultivated in this particular region, but its cup quality is extraordinary. We will be working with our exporting partner The Coffee Quest to continue developing this project, and hope that we'll be able to bring you more of this special coffee from this special region year after year.
