Having travelled around many of municipalities of Antioquia in search of coffee farms with the highest production, Farmer Nelson Hurtado can't remember a time in his life that he was not picking coffee. Along the way he fell in love with the town and people of Gaitania and so left Antioquia behind in 2005.  In 2014, using his life savings, Nelson Hurtado bought his own farm, El Eden. Since then he has been producing beautiful coffee by maintaining a farm full of trees and birds which create fertile soil and pay tribute to more traditional farming practices in Colombia.

The cherries of this natural yellow caturra are hand picked on the farm and then fermented for 40 hours inside grain pro bags. Cherries are then hand sorted and placed on raised beds with the coffee cherry intact to dry. This processing method brings out lots of tropical fruit and strawberry flavours.


We think it tastes like Strawberry, White Peach, Pineapple and Dark Chocolate.
