Manantiales Del Frontino is a new farm that we’re truly excited to begin working with. They have previously done very well in Cup of Excellence competitions & they place a lot of focus on the entire ecosystem at their farms. Situated in the world renowned region of Valle Del Cauca, the farm is situated at 1950MASL amongst the perfect landscape & microclimate to produce quality coffee. 

The team at Manantiales have developed a range of processing techniques to cater to different flavour profiles that are popular in the market. Our favourite is still a classic washed process with a simple upgrade. Whole cherries are wet fermented in tanks for a minimum of 8-12 hours before they’re pulped, rinsed & wet fermented further. This creates depth in the coffee’s taste experience as well as a smooth & juicy mouthfeel. 

We’re excited to showcase one of our favourite varietals – Red Bourbon! Bourbons are known for their intense sweetness & round, juicy mouthfeel. Our version brings about a mouth-watering acidity that’s reminiscent of red currants, whilst the sweetness is incredibly jammy, with notes of mandarin oranges, honey & cane sugar. We are super humbled to begin this relationship & can’t wait to see what the future holds in store!
