The first time I had a coffee produced by Mauricio Shattah from his farm Finca la Negrita was a Triple Staggered Gesha that all-around-amazing-person @paul_ross_ used to win the UKBC a few years ago, and it totally blew my mind!
I immediately set out to buy some green coffee from him and after a few months was able to secure 20 kg of a stunning Yellow Honey Gesha.

Mauricio is exactly the type of producer we set out to work with when we build the idea that would become Standout Coffee. Sharing the most exciting coffees to as many people as possible from the most innovative and progressive producers in the world.

We can truly say that Mauricio Shattah and his farm @fincalanegrita is exactly that!
These two versions of the gesha variety from his farm are exciting, innovative, progressive and just stunningly delicious 🤩 -Alexander from Standout Coffee

Coffee: Colombia Finca La Negrita, Red Enzymatic Gesha from the producer Mauricio Shattah.

Taste description: Aroma of orange blossom with notes of raspberry, honeysuckle, purple grape & a long and complex finish

Always fresh: This item contains 100 grams divided into 2 x 50 grams of whole beans roasted, packed and shipped on demand for maximum freshness.

Red Enzymatic Gesha: This Gesha microlot that has been passionately grown, and meticulously processed using an experimental, anaerobic technique. The technique applied to this lot is called enzymatic fermentation. The more controlled, accelerated fermentation releases less heat, and through this lower temperature, microbial colonies are more controllable, and new exotic profiles become available.
This highly controlled processing applied to a Red Gesha, grown high in the rich volcanic soil of the Tolima mountains, results in a complex and multidimensional cup in which every sip brings a slightly different taste experience. Clean, sweet, delicate, vibrant and aromatic, with a long, clean finish and a silky-smooth body!

Story: The coffee comes from one of the more progressive coffee producers around, Mauricio Shattah of Shattah Coffee and their farm La Negrita (named after Mauricio’s wife). The farm’s 8 ½ year-old history started by finding the best place for a coffee farm near Ibagué capital of the central department of Tolima. The farm expands from 1800 to 3500 m.a.s.l. and the coffees are planted up to 2350 m.a.s.l.

La Negrita is located in a V-shaped valley, so the coffee trees only get 6 to 7 hours of sunlight per day and temperatures range from 0 to 25 °C. Recently, he’s completely moved away from Washed production to focus on Naturals and Honeys, all of which are fermented anaerobically with a whole host of variables that can be changed to manipulate the cup profile, before drying in humidity-controlled darkness.
It rains almost daily, has four natural water springs and rich volcanic soil. 
Only 10% of the farm is planted, the rest remaining as protected rainforest with diverse flora and fauna.
