In the highlands outside of the small town Huamboya you’ll find the tiny farm La Colmena. Jorge Diaz Campos and his family grow this lovely Bourbon coffee in a lush forest area along a mountain side. When the coffee cherries have been handpicked the family uses pure and clean water from the area to wash the pulp away and ferment the beans in up to 36 hours. The resulting cup is a creamy and fruity one that was organically produced. Besides coffee, the Diaz Campos family also grow several other crops, keep livestock and bees. The biodiversity at the farm makes for healthy and fertile soil with strong and tasty crops. Jorge explains that they see their farm as a cycle, with each part affecting the other positively. From seed to cherry, livestock, people and bees are equally important in the quality they strive for together. At La Colmena attention to detail, quality and ecology are always top of mind.
