The Farmers

Rosevel Ortiz’s farm La Ilusión is one of several participants in an innovative programme in the Huila region of Colombia called Agustino Forest. The programme provides new infrastructure such as drying beds and trains growers to help them improve picking, drying and fermentation techniques.

There is also a focus on improving water use in wet mills and the inclusion of women growers. As an example of such efforts Ortiz continues to improve quality at his farm every year by working meticulously to make washing and fermentation processes even better at his own micro mill.

The farm is located at 1750 masl in a very hilly landscape and produces coffees from a mix of Caturra and Tabi varietals.

Huila, Colombia

One of several coffee growing regions in Colombia, Huila is perhaps the country’s best-known producing region. The municipality of San Agustin benefits from a location near subtropical and very humid mountainous forests. As a result, coffees from here are aromatically complex with citrus, caramel, mild green apple and honey notes.

Like many other regions in Colombia, life in Huila was severely affected by a widespread violence, which plagued Colombia between the 1990s and the early 2000s. In 2010 the Colombian government initiated a support programme for farmers who had been displaced following military confrontations. A central aim was to ensure that land would be returned to its rightful owners and to provide these people with the resources to restart agricultural production. In some cases this has also meant that growers have been provided with the means to move from commercial to specialty grade coffee production, which reaps a considerably higher market price.
