Product Information

Yeferson Olaya owns and operates Finca El Tesoro 1600 meters above sea level in the hills of Planadas municipality in the Tolima department of Colombia, 40 km from the municipality’s capital. Yeferson comes from a coffee producing family, with his father Nolberto operating his family farm Finca La Cinta nearby. Nolberto is recognized in the area for his commitment to protecting the environment through his farming practices, and this commitment is carried on by the whole family, including Yeferson and his farm.

Yeferson’s family stresses the importance of using onsite materials and compostables from processed food to create blends of organic materials that will act as a fertiliser, quality booster, and immunity shield for the plants. They produce and mix calcium rich ashes, mulch, and earthworms, as well as compost from coffee pulp and cane sugar molasses to create these agricultural inputs. Though the process requires lots of additional work and knowledge, this step is particularly important for them because it helps them to continue getting quality crops and good yields from all of the coffee plants.

Coffee cherries from El Tesoro are taken for processing at the nearby Finca La Cinta, which is outfitted with processing equipment and infrastructure to dry coffee, along with a quality control lab which contains a one-barrel sample roaster, a mobile stove, and cupping gear. Yeferson is a CQI Q Grader and assists his father with onsite quality control and feedback on post-harvest processes for all coffees processed at La Cinta.
