From the roaster:  

This particular lot comes from Edward Alexy Gonzales Mundaca, who harvested and processed this micro-lot on his 20 acre farm called Las Huacas. He has his own micro-mill where carefully harvested cherries are macerated for 24 hours, then floated to remove less dense and damaged coffee before depulping. After depulping the beans covered in mucilage are fermented for another 45 hours and then washed to remove the mucilage. Next the coffee is gently dried on covered raised beds. While Edward has designed farm management and post-harvest solutions to fit his needs, he also has a strong alliance with Aroma del Valle, which takes his coffee to the international market where it earns a fair price. 

I have been a subscriber since their launch, having been introduced to Better Grounds at a coffee festival. I have enjoyed every monthly selection so far! Their service is a great choice for anyone who, like me, wants easier access great quality coffee and anyone who might feel overwhelmed trying to look into the sourcing bonafides of different brands. I appreciate that they do this work for their clients, and also support different roasters who are doing good work.
