The coffees produced at Finca Sébastian are 100% Milenio variety, also known as F1-Hybrid.
An F1 hybrid is a dwarf variety crossbred between T5296 and Rume Sudan. This sophisticated crossbreeding has resulted in a new strong hybrid with high resilience against pests, climate change while still maintaining impressive cupping scores. On top of that the F1 hybrid produces 2 to 3 times more coffee cherries, in times of crises and on places where producers don’t get costs of production covered it’s a strong addition. We like to call the F1-Hybrid “The coffee of the future” and carry pride and purpose in spreading the word of this innovative and future proof coffee variety.
As for the Washed processing, the coffee is picked (ripe fruits only of course), left to rest 16 hours before mucilage is washed off. Subsequently the beans with parchment are placed on drying beds of 1.30 high and 1.50 wide in temperatures between 26º-32ºC. Here the beans are left to dry and ferment for 7 days until a moisture content of 10.5%-11.5% is reached.
