Edwin is a life-long,third-generation coffee grower, a trained agronomist & agroindustrial engineer, consultant, Q-Grader and Cup of Excellence judge. His coffees represent an intense pursuit of flavor based upon knowledge, experience and years of trial and error.

At Campo Hermoso farm, all the varieties of coffee start from the same point: the cherries are picked at their optimum point of maturity by means of manual selection, to go through a hydraulic selection of floats in water. At this point, each variety is taken to fermentation, which is different for each one in its fermentation process and its duration, decided by variety and what attributes Edwin wants to emphasize.

For this variety, cherries are harvested above 20º brix before soaking in water for 5 hours. Initial cherry carbonic maceration takes place for 96 hours. Coffee is depulped, leaving 45% of mucilage for the second cherry anaerobic fermentation of 48 hours, with recirculation of Mossto every 24 hours. Coffee is then sun-dried on African beds for 24 days until moisture reaches 10.5%. Final moisture stabilization for 8-10 days inside a warehouse before coffee is stored in grain pro bags, at which time the coffees are cupped and the lots organized.
