SANTA HELENA, COLOMBIA 500 G
Juan Pablo gives a great deal of attention to the ‘cultural’ works that happen on the farm annually. He does not have processing facilities on his small farm (2 hectare), so agricultural labour ‘in the field’ is where he can really add value and contribute to the coffee’s quality.
During the harvest seasons (Colombia has two annually) he hires up to two day labourers and a driver to carry the cherry to the Flor de Apía mill, where his coffee is processed. During the harvest seasons, every day coffee is collected and moved in the afternoon to the mill.
