Marco’s most recent entry into the Cup of Excellence Peru saw him collect the 6th place award. This Washed Red Bourbon is another strong representation of the dynamic and vibrant profiles produced in La Margarita.
The coffee cherries were pulped and fermented for over 30 hours. After fermentation, the remaining mucilage is washed off and then laid to dry on raised platforms under polycarbonate roofs for ten days.
Marco Solórzano is one of seven brothers and manages La Margarita. The farm sits at 1,850 metres above sea level in an agriculturally diverse district, with over seventy thousand introduced coffee tree varieties, including Geishas, Red Bourbon and Sydra, protected by native tree shade and flora.
