From our favourite Coffee Garden, Coffea Diversa in Biolley, Costa Rica. Gonzalo Hernandez has created one of the largest private collections of coffee varietals. Choosing to pursue the path of genetic diversification and retaining the history and lustre of coffees that were once grown around the world but now have been all but forgotten. One of the many reasons why we have been partnering with Gonzalo for the third harvest.
Rume Sudan, Winey Process: This is believed to be a heirloom variety discovered in Sudan in the 1940s along the border of Ethiopia and South Sudan and thought to be an Ethiopian landrace (wild) varietal. Initially sought after for its cup quality and disease resistance, low production yields saw this varietal basically extinct from commercial production.
