Finca El Recuerdo is a farm run by Libio Hoyos in the Huila district of Colombia, an area which boasts the perfect combination of high quality soil and geography to produce specialty coffee.
It’s quickly becoming one of the largest coffee producing regions in the country.
With this delivery we also want to highlight Caravela, a partner of ours on the ground in Colombia who help with sourcing and logistics, but also providing valuable year-round support for producers.
They run a program across seven Latin American countries called PECA (short for ‘Grower Education Program’ in Spanish) which aims to engage the next generation of coffee farmers in an analytical, science-based approach to profitable farm operations, focusing on quality and sustainability.
They also run two ‘virtual classrooms’ in Colombia where producers and their children can take online courses on a range of subjects including agronomy, sustainability, harvesting, and processing.
The majority of the producers we showcase at Sample are family-run or small co-operatives. As a small business ourselves, we’re proud to have partners like Caravela who support small producers and farmers at origin with education and information to help them grow successful, sustainable businesses.
