Importer Notes

Octavio López Compeseco owns the 6.25-manzana farm El Durazno, where he only grows coffee, mostly Caturra, Catuai, and Pache varieties. The coffee is depulped the same day it's harvested, then fermented dry for 24 hours before being washed three times to remove the mucilage. It's then spread on concrete patios to dry for 4–6 days.
