STORY: Edwin Noreña

For Edwin Noreña, being a coffee farmer is just one of the many hats that he wears in the coffee industry. He’s also an agro-industrial engineer, Q-grader, Q processing expert, international coffee processing consultant, and a Cup of Excellence competition head judge in Colombia.

Finca Campo Hermoso, is located in the department of Quindio, Colombia. This region plays a big role in the overall Colombian coffee supply and is part of what is regraded as the “coffee triangle” or better known in Spanish as “Triángulo del Café”. Finca Campo Hermoso has been in the Noreña family for 3 generations. Combining knowledge that has been cultivated through 3 generations at Campo Hermoso and relentless hunger and pursuit by Edwin to continue acquiring knowledge and elevate the prestige of Campo Hermoso today.

PROCESS: Black Honey Double Anaerobic Hopped Mossto

The Pink Bourbon cherries are handpicked and harvested at 17 degrees Brix. The initial fermentation begins with a 96 hour carbonic maceration with the addition of hops and starter cultures. After the coffee is pulped it undergoes a secondary, 72-hour fermentation with the integration of the hopped mossto that was collected from the initial fermentation. The coffee is then removed from the tanks, and laid out to dry on Campo Hermoso’s patios for 22 days. Finally, the coffee is relocated to the warehouse to rest for another 4-5 days to undergo a humidity stabilization process.
