Elmer Restrepo
My name is Elmer Restrepo and all my life I have been surrounded by coffee. I have never worked in the field, which does not mean that I don’t like it but that I have been in another branch of the coffee process. My dream had always been to have a farm and even more that it would be a coffee farm. In 2019 I had the opportunity to purchase a few lots of coffee, but my story began at a young age. I worked with coffee in the milling plants where I started at the bottom and my desire to succeed helped motivate me to acquire my own milling plant. I did this in order to help coffee growers. In the end I became a coffee grower myself, learning and adapting to lots of new tasks. No two days on the farm are ever the same, it all depends on the work that is being done. But the day in the field starts very early so that we can make the most of it. On a normal day, we work the lots normally, weed and carry out pest controls. We are in the lots at 6 am and we work until 9 am which is when they bring us breakfast. From there we continue weeding with the tools and go to the main house for lunch at 12 noon. We resume operations at 2 in the afternoon and finish at 4:30 pm. My mission is to be able to pay good salaries to my workers and help to improve their lifestyle. Colombian coffee prices are not very good and growing good quality coffee is expensive, which leads us to seek new opportunities to continue with my dream and to be able to provide superior qualities. I have always liked to help people; it’s special when I have whole families relying on me. It is gratifying to give people new opportunities; and when everything is done with love, it is reflected in the outcomes. I came into contact with Progeny Coffee in 2016. I became their partner for the milling of their beans. Since then we have built a great working relationship and friendship. We have created a great alliance in our mission to close the coffee production chain (production, milling, export and sale) among all. __Progeny Coffee__ Progeny is a project created by young Colombians who are developing direct sales channels between coffee growers and consumers. María J. Palacio, daughter and granddaughter of Colombian coffee growers, is the founder and CEO of Progeny Coffee. Maria is the voice of these coffee growers, from the outside but also from the inside. In recent years, María has had the opportunity to travel half the world, noticing that the coffee that consumers normally have access to has become a “commodity”. Being a "commodity", it is difficult or impossible to know who has grown it, under what techniques and under what economic conditions. From inside her country (Colombia), María has organized a group of coffee growers to bet on the quality of their crops. Her formula to achieve this? that coffee growers choose to be the protagonists not only of the cultivation, but also of the sale of their own coffees. In the words of María: “For a coffee farmer to be motivated to produce quality, you have to make him participate in the entire value chain. Just as consumers want to know the producers better, the producers must also get to know the consumers. It will help them feel special and be convinced that it is worth investing in a responsible and high quality crop ”.
Hacienda el Jardín
Since 2019 I, Elmer Restrepo, have been responsible for the productive lots at Hacienda El Jardin. My dream is to generate sustainable and high quality coffee growing; taking advantage of the high potential of these lands, through my knowledge of the processes inside and outside the farm. I continue the work that Mr. Alvaro Naranjo began in 1996 when he acquired a coffee farm called Parana. Passionate about coffee growing and its lands , Don Alvaro bought neighboring farms from coffee growers who wanted, at that time, to move away from agriculture due to economic difficulties during the coffee crisis. Hacienda El Jardín is located in the municipality of Villamaria, belonging to the coffee department of Caldas. Specifically, it is located in Los Cuervos , 10 minutes from the municipal seat of Chinchina, Caldas. The topography of the soil is undulating, with mountainous and flat areas as well as clay-loam and sandy-loam soils. The height above sea level for the productive lots remains between 1,423 and 1,525 meters, achieving agro-climatic variations that allow greater benefits in the quality of the coffee. The farm has over 7 hectares of forest which plays as home to various animals and a large number of birds. We are surrounded by mountains which generate very special micro-climates that promote a great variety of flavors. Caldas is located in the heart of the main coffee zone in the country. The development of coffee growing has allowed the Caldense countryside to be one of the most modernized in the country. The development of an infrastructure that facilitated the production and commercialization of coffee allowed the integration between rural and urban life with the consequent modernization of the countryside. It is usual for “farmers" and day laborers to move from towns or cities to meet the demands of the crop. The high economic, social and cultural levels that were forged during more than 70 years of coffee production were seriously affected by the coffee crisis. The Colombian coffee industry was affected by the collapse of prices as a reflection of a very wide international offer, focused more on quantity than on quality. Many coffee growers could not cope with production and Chinchiná endured the worst crisis of public order, common crime and social decomposition, which led to it becoming a marginal area Slowly the situation has been improving, and at Hacienda El Jardín we are committed to generating employment in the region to recover healthy work habits in the area. We are a team of 69 full-time people throughout the year, of which 4 are administrative staff, 40 are in charge of the coffee harvest, 35 men and 5 women, and we have a total of 25 day laborers. We also hire part-time workers who help us with diverse tasks (mainly picking) which is when we need help the most. All of the staff who work on the farm are well paid, and even more so when we talk about specialty coffee, since they take extra care when it comes to the harvesting and fermentation processes. We get the water for our crops naturally since we are in an area with a tropical climate and we are blessed to have 3 water sources on the farm, so we do not need automated irrigation systems. Each tree needs 40 cubic cm of water per month. We grow in a sustainable and environmentally friendly way. We only use organic and environmentally friendly mediums. This makes pest and weed control more difficult, but this controlled management creates a suitable environment for native species. To control CBB (Coffee Bean Borer), the main pest of coffee; native tasks are carried out: traps, follow-up counts, early and constant collection of beans and assuring that no beans are left in the soil that can promote the reproduction of the CBB. Furthermore, we are also using the Beauveria Bassiana fungus, which is proving very effective. We are also taking benefit from the coffee husk which we’re using as compost after its decomposed, and thus use what many consider garbage as organic fertilizer. We have a composting area and we accelerate the decomposition of the shell through the use of beneficial microorganisms. In addition, we’re using the coffee mucilage to make beverages for human consumption, which have many healthy properties.
