Cual Bicicleta Natural - Limited Release
Oscar Omar Alonzo has grown coffee for over 20 years. His farm, Finca “Cual Bicicleta” was named to reflect his life philosophy: riding a bike requires balance and forward momentum, and all parts of the bicycle must work in harmony to keep moving. After switching to organic production in 2003, Oscar initially saw a massive decrease in cherry production. However, with persistence and ingenuity, he grew to surpass his previous conventionally produced output. A unique practice on Oscar's farm is the use of coconut shells that capture and provide moisture to coffee trees during drought seasons. They are buried in the ground, deposited on the surface and mixed with organic fertilizers that are produced and applied on the farm.
This coffee from Finca Cual Bicicleta is naturally processed, meaning it is sun-dried with the entire coffee cherry remaining on the bean. This traditional method of processing gives the coffee an exceptionally fruity character, while also using significantly less water than fully washed coffees.
