ABOUT MACADAMIA COFFEE- DIOMER FIGUEROA
Specialty coffee from the most renowned region in Colombia: Huila
Diomer is the third generation, after his father don Álvaro Figueroa, senior coffee farmer of Finca La Fuente. Diomer has taken over the production of the farm, supporting his father for 6 years now/
Finca La Fuente has been cultivating fully-organic for 8 years now.
They use all the biological waste of coffee production and food waste of the farm to produce their fertilizer.
They also have a “bio-fabrica” which is a setup of different fermentation tanks where they use microorganisms to produce liquids that for foliar application of the plants to fight plagues and harmful insects.
Even though they produce fully organic, they are not organic certified mainly because the farm is 2,5 hectares which makes a certification very expensive. But who knows, in the future they might attain it.
All water used comes from their own springs on the farm and the only water involved in the process of coffee production is for the floating selection. For the rest, there is no water involved.
The harvest is fully made by hand and they pay an additional daily payment to the pickers for selecting only the ripest cherries.
Important also to mention that the drying is done by slow drying in raised beds for 14-18 days depending on the climate. This helps the coffee have a longer shelf-life.
