EDWIN CARVAJAL

Producer Profile

Finca Santa Librada is located in the Vereda Santa Librada in Santa María, Huila, Colombia, and is managed by Edwin Carvajal, a 44-year-old second-generation coffee grower. The farm consists of 39 hectares of land, with 12 hectares dedicated to growing coffee. It sits at an elevation of 1,900 m.a.s.l, and with around 30,000 coffee trees producing Pink Bourbon, Tabi, Caturra, and Gesha varieties. Edwin’s farm also contains a protected forest reserve alongside dedicated space for dairy cattle and horses. Edwin won second place at the 2024 Huila Magico competition with this gorgeous Pink Bourbon lot.

Huila

Of the many growing regions in Colombia, the mountainous department of Huila in the south west of the country grows the most coffee. Huila enjoys a wide diversity of micro-climates, temperatures, altitudes and coffee varieties. In fact, coffee is grown in 35 of Huila's 37 municipalities. All of this means that the coffee coming out of this region is as diverse as the variables that influence its production.

Pink Bourbon

Originally thought to be a natural hybrid of Red and Yellow Bourbon, this variety—which has been genetically confirmed as an Ethiopian Landrace—is famed for its characteristically pink ripened cherries and equally unique flavour characteristics, has become highly sought-after and more frequently cultivated as of late. On our trips to Colombia we've seen the variety proliferate across Colombia, particularly in Huila where it has become extremely popular amongst specialty focused coffee producers. Successful cultivation of this variety is difficult and requires careful isolation in order to maintain its distinctive colour and bright, fruity and floral profile.

Washed

Edwin’s lots start by handpicking the ripest cherries, de-pulping, and then leaving them in sealed barrels to ferment for 5 days. The parchment is then washed and placed to dry on raised beds for 15 – 20 days, depending on the weather.
