As we enter our third year working with Finca El Arrayan, we can confidently say that the coffee has continually improved year after year. We credit this to Jhon’s commitment to improve quality. We are also excited for the potential of Jhon’s newer coffee trees as they are planted a higher elevation (2,100 to 2,200 meters). This coffee is starting to produce now. In addition, Jhon planted 1,000 trees of the gesha variety. We are patiently awaiting the first production from these plants at the beginning of next year.
Jhon’s life is characterized by struggle. Displaced several times, his family tried to escape the violence of paramilitary and guerilla groups. Unfortunately, they still fell victim after two of his brothers were kidnapped, one of them being killed. Looking for a fresh start, Jhon and his wife purchased El Arrayan. They started with a few coffee plants and expanded over the years. The limited workforce available means he relies heavily on his three sons and daughter for the labor intensive coffee production. It also means his family will benefit greatly from our profit sharing plan.
