305- Milenio Extended Natural
Located in Llano Bonito of Naranjo, the farm has been recognized for its Specialty Coffee Production.
The plantation has 100% F1 Hybrid variety plants, which has allowed to develop specific processes during the drying period in order to maximize the natural flavors of the bean.
Farm size: 11.6 hectares
THE MILENIO VARIETY
The Milenio Varietal is a cross breed between Sarchimor and Rume Sudan. It has very good cup quality at elevations above 1300 meters and well-adapted to agroforestery conditions.
F1 Hybrid varieties are created by crossing genetically distinct parents (for example, a wild Ethiopian variety x Caturra). The offspring of the cross are first-generation (F1) hybrids. F1 Hybrids are notable because they tend to:
1. Have significantly higher production than non-hybrids.
2. Maintain high cup quality ideal for the specialty coffee market.
3. Are disease resistant (need significantly less agrochemicals)
F-1 hybrids are the hope for a sustainable future in the coffee industry!

The extended naturak process means that the cherries have been "slow dried" for a total period of 25 days.
It consists in placing the coffee in mounts for the first 10 days. The mounts are then turned around every 20 mintes. After day 10, it is laid flat but still in thicker layers of 10 cm when drying on the African beds or patios. The longer drying allows for a more extended fermentation period of the cherries. The slow drying also gives the coffee a longer shelf life. It will then keep its complex aromas for a longer period of time without showing signs of moldy or woody tones.
This results in a coffee with augmented complexity due to the fruitiness and sweetness in comparison with regular natural processes. The Naturals from Shefa have been a favourite and are a real fruit bomb!
