Our limited coffee collection Trust the Process is back with two coffees from award winning Colombian producer José Giraldo, of Café 1959. This multi-step experimental carbonic maceration washed process involves timed fermentation, a unique double washed procedure, and carefully monitored drying. The results are sweet and spicy with a distinctly ginger flavor in the cup.

José Giraldo, founder of the Colombian Coffee company Café 1959, brings science, technology, and tradition together to produce extraordinary award winning coffees. José is know for his innovative and unique experimental processes as well as his focus on sustainability.
This coffee was selectively picked when perfectly ripe, hand sorted, and immediately placed in sealed tanks to begin the anaerobic fermentation process. After the 12 hour journey to the La Clarita processing center, the cherries were pulped and put in tanks for 60 hours of pulped carbonic maceration. Then, the coffee was washed, soaked in water for 12 hours, and washed again. Finally the coffee was spread out on beds to sun dry (to 10.5% moisture) before being vacuum packaged for export.
There is a relatively new varietal of coffee in Colombia that has been called Chiroso (wild or ragged) since it was first noted in 2014. Originally it was thought to be a natural mutation of Caturra and was named Caturra Chiroso. Recent genetic studies have shown that the varietal is actually a recent arrival from Ethiopia. The varietal is now being referred to as Ethiopian Natural, Ethiopian Heirloom, or Ethiopian Landrace as well as Chiroso.
