The Bourbon Sidra variety is a variety of arabica on the rarer side, requiring specific shady, forest-like growing conditions and producing high cup quality. It has become a favorite in various coffee competitions.
Natural processing highlights Sidra’s fruity character, and this Sidra Colombia from El Diviso is bursting with tropical fruit, blueberry, and vanilla notes.
In the south of Huila, Jose Uribe Lasso founded Finca El Diviso as a way to discover new methods of improving Colombia coffee quality. The Lasso family rigorously experiments with processing and fermentation with different microorganisms in hopes of achieving unique, traceable cup profiles with international recognition. El Diviso is high up in Pitalito at 1,750 masl. Here, the Lasso family cultivates Pink and Yellow Bourbon, Sidra, Geisha, and Tabi varietals.
