Hernando “Meko” Gutierrez is a fourth-generation coffee farmer in Colombia. His family was one off the first who produced specialty coffee in this little town close to Buesaco.
At Meko’s farm they are trying to work as biologic as possible. When buying this coffee, you buy a coffee from one men’s backyard, this means that the coffee is traceable to one single address.
The farm, Rosa Florida, is in the Nariño region south of Colombia close to the border with Ecuador. All the coffee trees on the farm are well shaded and surrounded by mandarin, citrus and banana trees. Meko sells some off these fruits at a local market but most of it is used as fertilizer to keep the soil in great shape.
