Edilma Piedrahita – Espresso

  • Producer Edilma Piedrahita
  • Attributes Caturra and Tabi
  • Origin Bruselas, Huila, Colombia
  • Profile loads of tropical fruit with strawberry balsamic acidity. With milk, we get fermented cacao, malt and butter.

Edilma Piedrahita is the leader of Los Guacharos – our favourite producer group in Colombia, and the source of many of our most treasured profiles. Edilma is a great leader. Her effusive energy has buoyed us many times in the back of pickup trucks on long drives and we love her for her full-hearted commitment to her community.

Edilma shares our belief that steps towards sustainable production are essential for the future of coffee. This coffee is a mix of Caturra and Tabi lots. A small number of kilos of Edilma’s first Geisha harvest also contributed to the lot (too small for separation, this was the best way to enjoy it!)

We were super happy to be able to visit with Edilma and the Guacharos producers in June this year. And happier still to be able to undertake some fermentation experiments with Edilma especially. This lot is a traditional washed process – the lot is floated to remove over and under ripe cherrries, then depulped prior to a 42 hour fermentation in tanks, without water.

Pricing transparency: we paid $2,800,000 pesos per carga of parchment.

Roasted for espresso brewing.

We’re really proud to make our second Rwandan coffee release! We’re also super happy to disclose that, like our first release Kiyonza Hill, it has also come about through the efforts of Emmanuel Rusatira and his company Baho.

Emmanuel established Baho Coffee in 2013 after a long career in coffee that began as a washing station manager and culminated in a position as head of a department, managing a number of stations. Today, Baho Coffee oversees more than five washing stations across Rwanda.

This lot comes from cherry from small farmers located in Rulindo and is processed at Baho-operated Muzo coffee washing station located nearby in Gakenke. 

Cherries are first hand-sorted and then floated to ensure only ripe and non-defective fruit passes through to the dry fermentation and soak stages that follow.
