Sitio Kisbong Garnica - Natural Process
Sitio Kisbong Garnica Naturals is a single variety coffee from Kalsada's newest mill. Garnica ripens orange, unlike other arabica varieties that turn red. These elegant naturals remind us of sineguelas, melon, and berries.
The Origin: Sitio Kisbong, Atok, Benguet
Sitio Kisbong sits atop the Cordillera mountain range with an elevation of 1400 – 1700 masl. It is blessed with natural springs that flow all-year-round and is home to vegetable and coffee growers.
Processed in two micro mills that Kalsada built-in 2015, the washed coffees have intense vanilla and sweet floral aroma with flavor notes of dried fruit, cacao-nibs, cardamom, nutmeg, and allspice. The natural coffees have a distinct sweetness with notes of strawberries, lime, and a thick syrupy mouthfeel.
Varieties of typica, garnica, and bourbon are delivered to the station on a daily basis. This coffee is the fruit of the hard work of 50 families of growers that Kalsada Coffee Partners with.
