Meko’s farm is one of the best farms in this region. Because of there knowledge and years of experience this farm was one of the first that produced specialty coffee in this region. Here they are trying to use as less chemicals as possible to maintain the quality of the plants and there future.
The farm, Rosa Florida, is located in the Narino region, close to a little village called Buesaco.
All the coffee trees on the farm are well shaded and surrounded by mandarin, citrus and banana trees. This will make sure the quality of the soil is in great shape. All the fruit that they can not sell is used as fertilizer, these fruits give the soil that real special touch.
Last June i visit Meko’s farm, together we discussed some important things about the future, things about the environment as well as the quality of his coffee. One of the things i really found interesting is that Meko and his farmers are really eager to learn. So we decided to start making an unwashed coffee which will arrive within a few months.
