After five years of working with Edgar and Alejandro Ossa, the level of care and quality they put into their product remains inspiring. This particular lot has bright flavors of prune and vanilla with notes of anise.
For 28 years, Edgar Eladio Ossa and his son Alejandro have been attentively producing high-quality Caturra at their farm, Las Mercedes. They are progressive and often work with new technologies to improve the quality of their coffee. For example, they use a Brix meter, a device often used in the wine industry to measure sugar levels, to improve the washed processing of their coffee.
Edgar takes a Brix measurement first at the beginning of the fermentation process and then again every 6 hours to catch the ideal moment to wash the coffee and stop the fermentation. His coffees consistently amaze us with their clarity, velvety mouthfeel and distinguished flavours.
