Edgard Ramirez and his wife Fanny work at the farm La Argentina and also at his purchase point where they collect coffees from different farmers to sell and have a big family with 13 kids , the oldest one is only 24 years old.  Coffee is 100% hand picked, pulpled with a classic pulper. Grown in the Huila region which is one of the most well-known coffee growing areas of Colombia. The Department of Huila is situated for the most part in the Colombian Massif, harbouring Colombia’s second highest peak, the Nevado Del Huila Volcano. Indeed, the volcanic soil is hard to avoid in these parts of the Andes, which makes it fertile ground in which to grow coffee. Also contributing to the fertile soil is the Magdalena River, Colombia’s largest stream. Due to the weather, coffee production and harvest occur for most of the year, allowing imports of fresh coffee almost constantly. Ironically, the ideal growing conditions in the region, the high rainfall and humidity, makes it hard to dry and process coffee. 


During harvest season, the cherries are picked by hand and immature green cherries are separated. Over-ripe cherries are separated using floatation tanks and only prime red cherry is sent to pulpers. Pulped parchment is fermented for 24-48 hours depending on the local weather conditions at the time. 

Degas / Flavour maturation period:

Roasted coffee beans (Coffee) take two to four weeks resting after roasting, filter roast(medium light to medium roasting) and espresso roast(medium dark to dark roasting), basically the darker the roasting the longer the time needed.  Degassing aims to letting excessive carbon dioxide (byproduct from chemical reactions during coffee roasting) out from the roasted coffee beans for better extraction and brewing results.  During the period of time, the flavours of the Coffee will be maturer as well.  Drink within 3 months from the roasting date, and before someone else does.
