Farm El Turpial
Producer Yadile Mora Arenas
Micro Region Tolima
Esther recently travelled to Colombia and won this coffee in the land of diversity Colombian coffee competition/auction.
Yadile comes from a coffee growing family in Tolima department in the central area of Colombia. She is the third generation of coffee producers that have been working the same farm. When Yadile was 16 years old, her father decided to give her part of the farm a 3-hectare farm for her to start getting involved in coffee production.
His father taught her all the agronomical practices and all the post-harvest process to produce high quality coffee. Her family has been the biggest support and motivation to produce coffee, the product that they have produced for many years.
Yadile decided to study finance and go back to the farm, to apply all her knowledge in coffee production. Yadile is 26 years now and is dedicated to the farm. She is passionate for nature, coffee and animal. She is convinced that young people are the ones that have to generate development in rural regions.
The process that she did to the microlot she presented in the contest Colombia Land of Diversity started with a perfect picking, only full ripe cherries. The coffee was left in cherries for 12 hours before depulping for stabilization. Then coffee was depulped and left for fermentation for 18-20 hours. The drying process was done in parabolic dryers for 10 days.
They hire 6 pickers for the harvest time, that is very concentrated in May – July.
Yadile and his husband are passionate for birds and they decided to name the farm because of one of the most beautiful birds that visit often the farm.
