Vietnam Bao Loc Mill – 10 oz
The average farmer in the Lam Dong region of Vietnam cultivates coffee on about 1.2 hectares of land. They grow a mix of Catimor with some heirloom Arabica varieties, though the country is more famous for its Robusta production. Coffee is delivered in its cherry form and is processed at a central washing station named Bao Loc located in Dung K’No. Most coffees at Bao Loc are semi-washed, a term more common in Asia and the Asia-Pacific region. It describes a process somewhat similar to Honey in Central America. It is de-pulped and partially dried in its mucilage, then washed clean and dried on raised beds and/or patios for 3–5 days.
Cupping Notes: Sweet and citric with patchouli, cocoa, praline and lemon flavors.
