Farm: Los Idolos
Edgar Meneses and Marleny Lasso is a couple that has a part of Finca Los Idolos. 4 hectares each. It's located in Brucelas, a small community in Buesaco, Narino. They grow about 40% Colombia cultivar and 60% of the Caturra cultivar. It is located at 1900 m. The farm and mill is very tidy and clean, with really good systems in place. And the plants looks really healthy.
They process the coffee together, and as most producers in the region they got their own micro beneficio (processing unit and dryers etc). The coffees are hand-picked in several passes through the season. They separate the better qualities during the peak season. They remove the skin and fruit with a small mechanical de-pulper, ferment and wash the coffees in small tanks, normally 12-14 hrs wet fermentation. They then dry the coffees in parabolic dryers at the farm. Our quality standards are strict and they have to meet our criteria on both cupping score and humidity levels. This is part of a new project for us in partnership with an exporter that have their own quality team and purchasing point in Buesaco. They also have agronomists in place to support our producers.
The coffee from Narino is generally fully washed, pulped and fermented the traditional way. There is a few exceptions where farmers are using eco-pulpers with mechanical removal of mucilage, and/or are honey process, but it’s not too common.
We got to our hands this amazing coffee from the Collaboration with Edgar Meneses which started in 2013 when we established our company
