Finca El Paraiso from Ernedis Rodriguez is a beautiful farm about 12km East of the town of Gigante in Huila. The farm is perched exactly at the rim of a mountain with most of the fields facing west across the beautiful Magdalena river valley. The farm consists of a total of 14 hectares, of which 7 hectares are part of a Natural Reserve. The other 7 hectares of coffee area, 18,000 Caturra trees and 14,000 Castillo trees. One of the most remarkable aspects is that Ernedis treats the farm as a company. Naming it “the company” during conversation as well as maintaining a very well kept coffee area. Coffee farming is often a family business and with Ernedis that’s not different. He gets a lot of support from his wife and children. The family is included in the operations and his both daughters have been growing towards jobs (Quality Grader and Business Administration) within the local coffee sector.
This coffee is processed at approx. 1804 meters above sea level in small solar dryers and sold as separate varieties. In the next few years his volume of Caturra is expected to increase with about 5000 trees. --Info courtesy of The Coffee Quest Coffee Imports
