“Hi my name is Brayan, I was born here in Acevedo, a municipality in Huila, Colombia, specifically in San Odolfo, a rural coffee-growing area and one of the areas that produces the most coffee. Here it is a custom to be taught all the virtues and knowledge that the land gives us, giving us the tools to be able to work in the future, since I was 13 years old my father after school took me to know everything about coffee, which years later made me understand that it was what I am passionate about and wanted to do when I grew up. This year I managed to create a project with more than 60 coffee growers including my family, who collect and sell their coffee at a better price in cherry, being a strong work because we do the collection in places that people would not even imagine the challenge that it takes , but later I will show you some of that. To finish after that together with forest and the Ancla milling station, we process them, giving an added value and achieving unique profiles that I want you to try soon, since one of my dreams is that the coffee of San Adolfo Huila reaches the whole world.”

Tabi is a hybrid of bourbon, typica and timor. The name Tabi means “good” in the Guambiano (a native Colombian tribe) dialect. This coffee displays the positive cup qualities of it’s bourbon and Typica parents, while being more resistant to leaf rust.
Fermentation is a chemical process whereby carbohydrates, such as sugars are broken down into alcohols or acids by microbial activities in the absence of oxygen. While fermentation is, by its nature, an anaerobic process, the term “anaerobic fermentation” refers specifically to fermentation that occurs in a custom-built, oxygen-free environment, such as a sealed container or tank.
