Wush Wush from Ethiopia to Colombia
Marco Echeverry is the producer of the exotic variety coffee Wush Wush Las Nubes. The name Las Nubes translates to “The Clouds”. Its name is given due to the location of the farm high up in the mountains close to the clouds. It’s a beautiful quaint family-owned farm located near Salento and surrounded by pine plantations.
Marco, by bringing together his past experience in business and coffee, decided to invest in the best agricultural techniques in order to build a special coffee crop of Wush Wush variety.
While part of the process was focused on the growing of the trees, Marco developed a unique and highly personalized laboratory in order to test every crop, thus guaranteeing the best input for the best cup of coffee.
Las Nubes’ philosophy is to have a small production with excellent quality, surpassing the challenges of growing exotic varieties of coffee. That is why, the location of the farm is a plus, due to its cold environment surrounded by pines and its rainy seasons. Also being at the right altitude and fertile soil to support Wush Wush production.
The Wush Wush coffee from Las Nubes is a perfect reflection of the knowledge, hard work and passion of Marco Echeverry. This low-yield specialty coffee has a unique cup profile that has its origin from Ethiopia. It undergoes 150 hours of anaerobic fermentation before being naturally dried in cherry on african beds. This gives a profile featuring chocolate covered cherries and peanuts, that will blow away the taste buds of any coffee lover. It’s the perfect cup of coffee for customers that want to get out of the traditional coffee zone and enter into the new and refreshing profiles.
