Diego began as a coffee producer in when he acquired his farm in the village of San Francisco, La Florida Nariño. With a background as an agronomist he had already worked many years of his life on farms. Using this experience, particularly in the control of diseases and insect control, he decided to plant the majority of his farm in Caturra for its perceived better cup profile.
Constantly striving for improvements and innovation, Diego begun experimenting with honeys and naturals a few years ago. Picking only the ripest cherries, Diego achieves an incredibly sweet and complex cup. The low humidity at his farm allows him to dry coffee very slowly under shaded tunnels, resulting in a very clean cup. On the back of a number of successful harvests, Diego expanded his raised bed and tunnel facilities for the 2019 crop, allowing him to produce more honeys and naturals.
