Tasting Notes: Crispin Apple, Maple Candy, Coconut, Mint Chocolate
Ederleth Lozano Molina runs a farm with her husband, son, and daughter-in-law. On their larger farm, she has set aside land reserved as her own personal lot called Finca Cosita Linda. When she first acquired the property, the land was overgrown, and filled with unhealthy coffee trees. She cleared the overgrowth, replanted the trees, and is dedicated to all biodynamic practices to maintain the plants’ health. Remotely located at a height of 1,800 meters, and situated on an extremely steep section of property, reviving this plot of land was no small undertaking.
In 2017, we visited Colombia, where we had the pleasure of helping judge a local micro-lot competition held at the "Coffee for Peace" festival. In a blind tasting, we discovered Ederleth's coffee, which came in second place out of over 260 entries. After falling in-love with the cup, we went to visit Ederleth’s farm. Climbing up the steep mountainside farm, we were greeted with an expansive view, and Ederleth’s warm hospitality. Since 2017, we have continued to buy coffee from Ederleth, and remain equally impressed each year with her new harvests.
Ederleth’s Coffee is sourced through Azahar Coffee, an organization that connects small, quality focused farmers from around Colombia with roasters such as ourselves. They diligently work to find the best coffees being grown in Colombia such as this one. The combination of tart and sweet notes in this coffee are perfectly balanced, showcasing Ederleth’s exceptional growing skills.
