Finca El Rinconcito is located in Suaza, Huila, Colombia and run by Eduardo Urquina. The farm sits at an elevation of approximately 1,550 meters and consists of nearly 4 hectares in total. Of those 4 hectares, approximately 12,500 trees are Variedad Colombia and 5,000 trees are Pink Bourbon, the varietal represented here. Pink Bourbon was separated for this lot and explains the sweetness of the coffee.
Eduardo has an unusual washed processing routine. He ferments the coffee for 24 hours in cherry, de-pulps and then ferments it without water in the tank for another 38 hours. Upon washing, the coffee is dried in a greenhouse for around 20 to 25 days depending on the climate. This is our first time offering Eduardo's coffee and came to know it through and exporter who works with small, quality farms in various regions of Colombia. They work closely with a team of young growers called The Bean Project, whom share a vision concerning how producers should be treated, which includes fair, fixed pricing. Eduardo was interested and eventually came into the project.
We have a small quantity of this coffee and anticipate having it for roughly 2 months.
