ARLEY & MARIA DELGADO
|Region||Alto el Chilurco, Huila|
|Farm||Finca Los Arboles|
Cherry, honey, floral. Pleasant lemon acidity and a hint of nectarine in the finish.
Arley Delgado attributes his success to the support and skill of his wife, Maria. They work together in their farm Los Arboles in Alto el Chilurco, Huila. The farm sits at 1700 masl and is surrounded by lush landscapes and verdant trees. Arley and his wife selectively handpick ripe, red cherry and process it on their farm. The cherries are visually hand sorted, pulped and fermented for 24 hours. After fermentation, the beans are washed in clean water and then dried. Arley rakes parchment frequently to ensure even drying.
