With over 27 years on this farm, Edgar Eladio Ossa has been attentively producing Caturra with the help of his son Alejandro. They are both working with a brix meter to come up with a series of recipes to guide their fermentation process, a tool commonly used in the wine industry to measure sugar density. Most producers rely on a set number of hours for fermentation, or something as simple as fermenting overnight and feeling the parchment to ensure all the mucilage is gone. With a brix measurement right after depulping, and at 6 hour intervals, Edgar and Alejandro can catch the ideal moment to wash the coffee, mitigating over-fermentation. His coffees consistently amazed us with clarity, velvety and distinguished flavours and are only getting better over time! Edgar is always providing us with exciting, unique Colombian coffee.
