Edwin @alquimistaspecialtycoffee is a life-long coffee grower, a trained agronomist, instructor, consultant, Q-Grader and Cup of Excellence judge. His coffees represent an intense pursuit of flavor based upon knowledge, experience and years of trial and error.
Since our first import of Edwin’s coffees in January 2021, we’ve had the pleasure of representing his expertise to roasters across the USA and New Zealand, and are grateful he entrusted us with his life’s pursuit.
If this is the first time you are trying an experimental process, we recommend you take a minute and forget what you think coffee “should” taste like. It is an experience all of its own.
