他目前進行 5 天的預乾燥（陰乾，洗後直接乾燥），然後乾燥 15-30 天，直到他知道水分含量約為 11%。他的晾衣架在晾衣架下有塑料。他們檢查乾燥的咖啡中是否有蟲害 bora / broca，壞的咖啡會進入塑料收藏，然後以 pesa（超級咖啡，或 C 級）的形式出售。
Huila is a province in southwestern Colombia that lies between the Eastern and Central mountain ranges. The Magdalena river winds its way through the entire region, which is also home to Colombia’s second highest peak: the Nevado del Huila volcano. With an average temperature of 65°F year-round and fertile soil that also contains a variety of rich mineral resources, Huila boasts a vibrant agricultural industry.
Finca La Eperanza is high in the mountains near Gigante, in Huila. Edilfonso was a passionate coffee farmer, he inherited the farm from his Dad. The farm is a family affair. He works as a team with his wife who is a pillar. She is very fast picking and sorting. He and his wife do most of the picking and processing, with a little help from his one brother. He does also hire 3-4 other pickers when needed. He has another brother, that he and his brother bought out, and he wants to buy his other brother out as soon as he has paid off the other brother. He feels he and his wife and family (he has three girls) can cope with the farm of 4 hectares, which he believes is big enough. His children get rewarded for helping when they want, and he and his wife love them being involved.
He currently does 5 days pre-dry (shade drying, straight after washing), then 15-30 dry to dry thereafter, until he knows the moisture level is around 11%. His drying racks have plastic under the drying screens. They check the drying coffee for bora / broca and the bad coffees fall through to the plastics collection, which they then sell as pesa (over grade coffee, or C Grade).
Interesting to note is that Edilfonso is one of the producers that are consistently producing high-grade parchment and so for him and other producers like him Caravela actually provide grain pro bags to store the parchment in and deliver to the QC. Caravela believes that these assists in retaining quality coffee coffee.
This washed Colombian coffee is a super juicy coffee. With orange blossom & cane sugar sweetness, finish with a juicy aftertaste. A lovely coffee to start your day!
