Ernedis Rodriguez is a young farmer, extremely motivated to produce great coffees. He always comes up with crazy ideas for experiments with different types of processing, like extended fermentations in different ways (aerobic, anaerobic, partially in cherry etc.)
Ernedis has been producing coffee his entire life and the hard work and effort that he puts into producing his coffees are evident not only in cup quality but also in the physical quality of the beans.
El Paraiso is a beautiful farm 12km east of Gigante, Huila, perched exactly at the rim of a mountain with most of the fields facing west across the beautiful Magdalena river valley. His mostly caturra trees grow at an elevation of approx. 1840m above sea level guaranteeing a great sweetness in the cup.
The farm consists of a total of 14 hectares, of which 7 are part of a natural reserve. The other 7 hectares currently produce coffee, 70% of which are of the Caturra varietal and 30% Castillo. All of his specialty lots are 100% Caturra and the Castillo lots are processed and sold separately to help finance the daily operations of the farm.
The coffee of Ernedis can be described as extremely sweet and full in the mouth.
