HABLA LA TIERRA

Finca La Tierra is our own 10 hectare coffee farm in Cauca, Colombia. We bought a pretty worn down farm in early 2017 because it happened to be for sale, the location was good and the size not too over-whelming. And because we were and are really eager to learn about coffee farming for real. Johan has travelled the coffee world, walked more steps on coffee farms than most people, but this is something completely different, this is hard work and full commitment. 

 

Our aim with Finca La Tierra is to to learn about growing coffee and to see how far we can develop a conventional farm that grows commercial varieties - colombia, castillo, supremo - and uses full sun exposure to the coffee trees and conventional fertilizing, to a sustainable speciality coffee farm. We have at the moment started to plant shade trees, brought in manure and other more natural ways of fertilizing, and also planted other varieties - bourbon, striped caturra, tabi,.

 

We have also made a variety garden where we have planted 15 different varieties so far - different Geishas, Pacamara, several strains of bourbon, maracaturra - so we can in the future cup these coffees and see what will taste best in the cup and would work on the farm. 

 

Our aim is tell the story of Finca La Tierra, our hard work in turning it into a speciality coffee farm. We want to share everything, all its unglamorous downs and all its glorious ups.

 

Already today we sell our blend of castillo and supremo from the farm. It is a good solid specialty coffee that is bright and sweet. So it is a good signal that this farm in the future can produce some stellar coffees.

COLOMBIA LA TIERRA

BALANSERAD / FRUKTIG / FYLLIG

 

Finca La Tierra är vår egen kaffegård i Colombia, som vi driver ihop med vår vän Heber Sarria. Vi köpte den 10 hektar stora gården 2015 och har sedan dess utvecklat den genom att bland annat plantera skuggträd, utbilda personal, byggt torkbäddar för kaffet, fört in kogödsel och andra mer naturliga sätt att gödsla, samt planterat ett tiotal olika kaffevarieteter - pink Bourbon, Caturra, Tabi mm. Målet är att göra kaffet successivt bättre och gården helt hållbar. Idag har kaffet från La Teirra en mjukt fruktig karaktär med en fin fyllighet påminnande av röda bär och kakao.
