Elder is such a cool guy and so aligned with our views on quality. I love working with him. Elder story is long (see below), but I’m going to distill it quickly for you here. When he started in coffee, he was told to plant catimor (not a very good coffee varietal) in his amazing piece of land. When I met him, I actually liked his catimor and started buying it. But I always felt that his farm has too high potential to be planted with catimor. I brought Elder Geisha seeds from Panama (from the Hartmann) and suggested he plant some of them in his farm. He then proceeded to rip out the entire catimor planted and replant the farm with Panama Geisha. If you’re not used to coffee production, this move is VERY bold, since it left him with no income from his farm for nearly three years! While we waited for his Geisha to grow, I told Elder that I would buy his Parainema from another small farm of his. I asked him to experiment with different processing methods, as I was not too fond of the traditionally washed Parainema. He did a bunch of failed experiments until he nailed the honey processed Parainema (this coffee). I was instantly drawn to the heavy body, deep sweetness and gentle fruit profile of the coffee.
