Luis Dib
My name is Luis Gonzaga Carlos Dib, I’m retired and Civil Engineer by profession. I carry in my blood the love for agriculture inherited from my father, of Lebanese origin, who grew olive trees. This reason led me to grow bananas during a time of my life in lands near my city Santa Marta. My wife Martha also comes from a family dedicated to agriculture. In her case to the cultivation of cotton, rice and livestock. Once retired, we decided to focus on a dream from years ago: trying to acquire a farm in the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta. This is how in 2008 we bought the farm with coffee crops in poor condition. Since then we began the task of renewing the cultivation motivated not only by our love of agriculture but also by the magical and exotic charm of this mountain range. Its unique characteristics in the world are combined to produce exceptional coffee accompanied by nature, the sound of birds, waking up with the turkeys singing and the howler monkeys marking their territory. From the renewal of the crops, we made the decision to produce special, ecological, clean coffees, through an environmentally friendly process, following the Rainforest guidelines and the practices indicated by the National Federation of Coffee Growers of Colombia on the renewal of the crop. With their support and advice, we planted six (6) hectares of coffee, Castillo variety resistant to rust, an essential factor since it does not require fungicides. Since then, we have had a clear objective, of permanently achieving improvements in the production process that adds value to produce high-quality organic coffee that could reach differentiated markets through CrowdFarming with a quality product. Day to day on the farm is very laborious and varies depending on whether it is harvest season or not. Throughout the year, we have a couple who collaborate with all the tasks of the farm. Martha and our worker's wife take care of the daily housework, while we do all the tasks related to caring for the crops. Thanks to the Casine - Café Porte project, I decided to join CrowdFarming so that more people in the world can enjoy an ecological and environmentally friendly coffee. This coffee is the result of our arduous training and work process on the farm to produce specialty coffees and thus achieve the sustainability and continuity of our family project through our children. __Casine-Café Porte__ Casine-Café Porte is a project developed by active members of the BOLSA MERCANTIL DE COLOMBIA-BMC (Commodities Exchange) that promote the formalization of the activity of farmers and the marketing of their products directly to the final consumer. This work is carried out through the structuring of future contracts (Forward), a mechanism through which the producer ensures its commercialization in advance of the harvest and a fair sale price, thus avoiding intermediation and the production of surpluses and waste. Casine-Café Porte also contributes to the financing of its production processes and the consolidated purchase of its raw materials, achieving significant savings. By being able to purchase the inputs required for their crops from primary manufacturers in a consolidated way, the cost of production is reduced and profitability improved. Luis Gonzalo, the director of Casine - Café Porte, along with his manager in Europe, Andrés, and the coffee grower Luis, began to shape this project of marketing and exporting coffee at the end of 2018 and since then the same three people have been at the helm . Casine - Café Porte buys from Luis, because of the high quality organic crop, a part of his production 72% above the market price. This translates into a fair income by the quality of the product for him, his family and his workers.
La Milagrosa
La Milagrosa is a farm located in the far north of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, an isolated mountain range of the Andes, which rises sharply on the shores of the Caribbean Sea and at only 42 km reaches a height of 5775 meters on their summits with perpetual snow. It is the highest coastal mountain in the world and due to its tropical position, it has a great variety of climates and ecosystems of great biological and hydrological importance. The farm has an area of 16 hectares of which 6 are cultivated and the other 10 are home to 6 native forests. These forests are necessary to protect the sources of pure water, not polluted by man, that run through the farm in the form of streams. There is a small growing area exclusively for domestic consumption, but the only crop on the farm that is used for family sustenance is coffee. It is made up of 25,000 coffee trees of the Castillo variety protected by the native forest reserve where the temperature ranges between 14 and 23 degrees Celsius. At the altitude where the farm is located (1,600 to 1,700 meters above sea level), where a climatic phenomenon occurs that, in part, makes this coffee different. During the morning hours, the heat of the sun condenses the water, which by noon has created dense clouds that end up falling over the coffee plantations as the afternoon falls. The farm is located in an area that has the most essential things to produce a unique and special origin coffee: a wonderful land framed in the sanctuary of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta with its snowy peaks, its springs of pure water and the mist that at different times of the day it covers the forest and crops with its mantle. The work begins with the cleaning of the weeds and with the "plateo". The plateo consists of having prepared and cleaned of all dirt a round of earth that is made at the base of each of the coffee trees (coffee plants) where the manual fertilization work is carried out. We go through all the crops by zones and carry out a process that we call “zoca”, which consists of uprooting the old coffee plantations and planting again, in order to guarantee the renewal of the crop and a constant production throughout the years. Once this work is finished, we continue with the maintenance of the fences and the cleaning of the various water sources that we have on the farm. Our coffee trees are watered with rainwater. At harvest time, when we proceed to visit each of the coffee plantations and manually collect the red fruits, we have the participation of 12 people to carry out all the processes of collection, selection, drying, washing, fermentation and packaging of the green dry bean for transport and subsequent roasting outside the farm. We also enjoy a beautiful view of the Caribbean Sea surrounded by a great variety of native plants and incredible fauna. There are many kinds of birds (parakeets, parrots, macaws, pigeons, partridges, orioles, tanager turkeys, flytraps, many kinds of hummingbirds etc.) of which there are 14 endemic. It is a paradise for bird watchers. In addition, there are larger species such as the jaguar, the puma, the foxes, the deer, the armadillos, the ñeques, the chestnut, the hawthorn fox, the weasels; also great variety of butterflies, insects, etc. The Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta was declared by Unesco as a Biosphere Reserve, of Man and of Humanity in 1979 and is the cradle of the Tayrona indigenous civilization. The Kogui, Wiwa, Arhuacos and Kankuamo ethnic groups live there and within this mountainous massif is located the Teyuna Archaeological Park known as "Lost City".
