Darwin Fidel Lopez is a 34-year-old coffee producer from Las Cochitas and is the son of Fidel Lopez, another Pergamino allied producer. 7 years ago, his father gave him a parcel of land to take care of from the family farm, Finca El Naranjo. Since then, Darwin has devoted himself to specialty coffee, helping his father with innovative fermentation practices and working closely with the Pergamino lab in Buesaco to receive feedback from their experiments and trials.
As a result of Pergamino feedback, Darwin has decided to focus on extended fermentation, leading to fruitier and more complex profiles while still maintaining the clean, bright cup that makes a Nariño coffee. Darwin typically de-pulps coffee 2 days after picking, fermenting without water for another 48 hours. This lot we selected has a citrusy brightness, a plum-like sweetness and a smooth finish.
