Torrefacto--it's a delicious Spanish coffee bean that is finely coated in sugar before roasting. Yumm! That describes our Torrefacto to a "T"! He's a true black son of our Champion black herdsire, Dundee's AJ Stormcat and our multiple-championship fawn gal, Derwydd Peruvian Inti-Siqay. His dam took Reserve Color Champion in Fleece at the AOBA/International Fleece show in 2009, and our Torrefacto combines the best qualities of both of his parents. His sire comes from very black bloodlines known for retention of fineness, great coformation, and Torrefacto shares his sire's mellow temperament. His dam has incredibly dense, crimped fleece with a lo-o-ong staple length.

Torrefacto has a correct, compact , strong conformation--he's matured into an impressive macho. His fleece is bright and nicely crimped with a lovely handle and it is almost blue-black in hue. He has the cutest silver/white spot right on the tip of his nose. We think he's going to be something special, and so do the judges--he took a blue ribbon his first time out in the ring, and another 1st of 6 at the California Classic. I've just skirted his 2012 blanket for the fleece shows--he has fine fleece with a lovely handle, brightness, and nice bundling. It's yummy!---WOW--his 2013 fleece is EVEN BETTER--and it took RESERVE CHAMPION at the show! He's developed well-defined bundles with very high frequency crimp, brightness, and consistency of crimp. Torrefacto took 1st and Color Champion in the 2014 AlpacaMania Fleece show--with his 4rth Fleece! His dam, Inti-Siqay is really kicking in with her AOBA/International Championship fleece!

Torrefacto is 4 1/2 years old now, and his first crias are on the ground. Moka is a TB female with matching white "spats" on her hind feet. She gets that cute white spot gene from her sire. I'm pleased to see Torrefacto has really improved both crias--Moka has fineness and density, with a medium frequency crimp and BRIGHTNESS! Kahlua is very bright, has a wonderful handle (his was the first cria fleece I sold), and also a medium amplitude crimp and very long staple length.

***Seller reserves 2 breedings to Torrefacto--drive by or will pay agistment for female. We don't want to lose out on this genetic power-house!

Check out our "Black is Back" package listing, featuring Torrefacto and an unrelated proven Black female!

Torrefacto has moved to his new digs at Alpacas of Marin in the north San Francisco Bay area.

There's more: Torrefacto took ANOTHER blue ribbon in fleece at the 2016 Nationals--the judge stated that he has excellent fleece characteristics for his age!
