VISIT US AND LEARN HOW THE COFFEE YOU ARE DRINKING IS MADE!
The farms are located in an area that has the most essential to produce a unique and special origin coffee:
A wonderful land framed in the sanctuary of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta with its snowy peaks, the fog that at different times of the day covers the jungle and crops with its mantle, its beautiful view of the Caribbean Sea, surrounded by a great variety of native plants, incredible and fascinating fauna and its pure water springs.
The farms are located in the extreme north of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta. This mountainous massif, isolated from the Andes mountain range, rises abruptly over the coasts of the Caribbean Sea and at just 42 km it reaches a height of 5,775 meters and
on its peaks you will find perpetual snow.
In them, we find several native forests necessary to protect the sources of pure water, which run through the farm.
At the altitude where the farms are located (from 1,600 to 1,700 meters above sea level), a climatic phenomenon occurs that, in part, makes this coffee different: during the morning hours the heat of the sun condenses the water, that by noon has created
dense clouds that end up falling over the coffee plantations as the afternoon falls.
The Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta was declared by UNESCO as a Biosphere, Man and Humanity Reserve in 1979 and is the cradle of the Tayrona indigenous civilization. The Kogui, Wiwa, Arhuacos and Kankuamo ethnic groups live there and within this mountainous massif is located the Teyuna Archaeological Park known as "Lost City" .
The work on the farm begins with cleaning the weeds and with the "plateo". The silver plate consists of having prepared and clean of all dirt an earth ring that
It is made at the base of each one of the coffee trees (coffee plants) where the manure and manual fertilization work are carried out. We go through all the cultivation by zones and carry out a process that we call “zoca”, which consists of uprooting the old coffee plantations and sowing again, in order to guarantee the renewal of the crop and a constant production over the years.
Once this work is finished, we continue with the maintenance of the fences and the
cleaning of the various water sources that we have on the farms.
At harvest time, when we proceed to visit each of the coffee plantations and manually collect the red fruits, we have the participation of several people to carry out all the processes of harvesting, selection, drying, washing, fermentation and packaging of the grain. dry green for transport and subsequent threshing and roasting outside the farm.
We live with many kinds of birds (parakeets, parrots, macaws, pigeons, partridges, orioles, tanager turkeys, flytraps, many kinds of hummingbirds, etc.) of which
there are 14 endemics, making it a paradise for bird watchers. In addition, there are larger species such as the jaguar, the puma, the foxes, the deer, the armadillos, the ñeques, the hawthorn fox, the weasels; also great variety of butterflies, insects, etc.
