We’ve known Esnaider for years as he’s been working for the exporter of our Colombian coffees, Fairfield Trading. He has been roasting and cupping thousands of samples while taking part in discussions between roasters and producers. He convinced his father to turn the focus of their family farm to specialty coffee. With his time at Fairfield, his father’s experience and his own determination and attention to detail, they are already producing exceptional lots. He uses an old technique of processing that his father used and his father before him. When the coffee cherries have been depulped, the beans ferments in wooden crates which yields a sweeter, more complex cup. When we decided to start buying his coffee his family invited us to a dinner to celebrate our new working relationship. Esnaider decorated the table with a depulper and put a jute bag of coffee in the seat of honour. An evening just as beautiful and memorable as this coffee.
