Fruity, complex, delicious coffee from a local small business. What could be better?

Elizabeth Taylor

It us a lovely smooth coffee. I would however like a stronger taste. Not sure if I mean a darker roast.

Product description

El Dragón lot is the result of 22 smallholder producers from the Buesaco region, Nariño, with whom The Coffee Quest has been working closely. Thanks to our local presence in the region, we’ve been able to build personal contact with local farmers and support them in achieving improvement and finding opportunities to prosper.

One of the contributing farmers is Luis Vicente Hernandez from Finca Loma Linda. He has been farming since he was six years old, starting out by helping on his family’s farm as a lesson on the hardships of making a living. After completing school, he worked as a day labourer and sold various crops for income. Nine years ago, he began growing coffee plants, alongside which he grows his corn, cassava, beans, and bananas.

“I am very proud that all of my children are interested in continuing my family’s coffee tradition and preserving our legacy.” – Luis Vincente Hernandez

Currently, Luis is still dedicated to his farm work, which he does with passion. He is now also a proud father of three children, all of whom have expressed an interest in following in his footsteps and becoming coffee growers themselves.

The coffee used is mainly of the Caturro, Pink bourbon, Castilla and Colombia varieties, leading to a creamy profile with a distinctly fruity and floral aroma.

Which decaf method was used for El Dragon coffee?

The decaffeination method implemented was the Ethyl Acetate, commonly called the sugar cane technique. Ethyl Acetate (E.A.) is a volatile product with a sweet chemical scent similar to nail polish remover. The Ethanol (alcohol) that is part of E.A. is commonly extracted from fermented sugar cane. This is why Ethyl Acetate is often called the sugar cane technique.
