Finca Chelín Geisha Filter

$50.00

Finca Chelín has positioned itself as one of the most scientific and innovative farms in Mexico. They are the epicentre of innovation and specialty coffee in the country, commanded by the producer Enrique López Aguilar; the second generation of producers of his family.

Enrique has developed a unique process for this Black honey geisha; in this case, only the ripest cherries are picked. They then undergo 2 days within specialised vats to start the carbonic maceration in-cherry process. Afterwards, drying resumes for 3 days in direct sunlight, passing to modified African beds with UV-protective plastic for 25 days.

Finca Chelín was purchased by Enrique’s due to it’s high elevation, starting from 1600 meters above sea level. It has cool temperatures and steady winds from the Pacific ocean that encourage slow ripening of his coffee fruit. For Enrique, controlling all of the parameters of coffee production is key to his success. Varietal selection, meticulous fermentation and advanced processing techniques are the tools that he employs for mastery of the elements of specialty production.

Enrique adopts a unique philosophy towards the vital natural environment with which his work stems from. He has converted what was once a run down, over grown farm, into a healthy, carbon neutral oasis that provides habitat for local wildlife, fruit and hardwood. Enrique also has reserved space on Finca Chelin for new experimental varietals, as well as pioneering numerous experimental processing methods over the decades to ensure the future and advancement of the Mexican coffee landscape.

Enrique's reputation and passion is renowned throughout the industry and his endless pursuit and dedication to quality is shown through his decades of work at Finca Chelín.
