John Jairo Pulgarin
John Jairo Pulgarin a coffee farmer full of hopes and dreams who considered obstacles in his way as steps to become stronger and move forward. He likes to talk with humbleness about how much effort it was to buy his farm La Clarita. John grew up in a family with few resources where already at a young age he worked as a coffee picker on other farms. That was when his love for coffee and its cultivation started and with the dream of offering his children an education and a different future, he saved money and was able to make his dreams come true after a couple of years. Today he is the owner of the La Clarita farm and father of three children. The biggest desire of John Jair is to be able to offer his children the education he didn’t get. In his search for a better future the paths of John Jairo and Progeny Coffee crossed securing a sustainable price for his harvest. John Jairo has become a coffee producer of Progeny Coffee, where he stands out among the Colombian farmers as one of the few who opts for organic sowing. His practices are not only excellent but also reflect in a cup of his coffee. Furthermore, John Jairo achieved his big goal and thanks to his work his 2 daughters and his son can study. __Progeny Coffee__ Progeny is a project of young Colombians that develop direct sales channels between coffee farmers and consumers. María J. Palacio, daughter and niece of Colombian coffee farmers is the founder and CEO of Progeny Coffee. María and her team offer coffee farmers like John and his family a direct window to the rest of the world. María is the voice of these coffee farmers and reports to the outside as well as to them on the inside. In recent year María had the chance to travel the world pointing out that the coffee that consumers usually have access to has turned into a commodity. Being a commodity it is difficult and impossible to know who has cultivated it under which economic circumstances, using what techniques. Within Colombia María brought together a group of coffee farmers to advocate for the quality of their cultivation. Her plan to achieve this: making sure that the coffee farmers are the protagonists and not only of the cultivation but also of the sale of their own coffees. María put it like this: “In order to motivate a coffee farmer to produce quality you need to let him take part in the entire value chain. As well as consumers, who want to know more and more about the farmers, the farmers also have a right to get to know the consumers and feel special and convince them that it is worthwhile to go for responsible and top quality cultivation”.
John Jairo Pulgarin

“Thanks to the adoption system we can plan ahead and in doing so we achieve to produce coffee based on the real demand of the consumers. To have the security of sale at a fair price motivates us to give our best in our daily tasks on the coffee fields because our own image and work is at stake.“

It is a traditional coffee farm close to the Natural Park Tatamá of the Western mountain range of the Risaralda division. The Tamatá Park is known as the only virgin moor in the world which explains the importance of strictly using organic practices on the La Clarita farm. Being on the foothills of the Protected Area the farm has a very diverse and important flora and fauna which creates an ideal ecosystem for a cup of 100% organic coffee. Moreover, the farm relies on the many different water springs in Páramo, which are one of the few water springs that have not been altered by humans, originating from a natural and pure source.
