Pablo Guerrero’s farm Hacienda El Obraje is one of the most stunning properties in the mountains of the Nariño department. Originally the hundred-hectare farm was an apple orchard, and the transition to coffee has been challenging yet rewarding. Mr. Guerrero’s background in architecture leads him to approach coffee from both passionate and pragmatic angles, applying planting and processing strategies designed for long term farm health

El Obraje is equipped with a small but extremely tidy wet mill on the property. Coffee processing begins as soon as the cherries are harvested. Geisha plots were harvested between February and May of 2018 as cherries ripened slowly. Each day after harvest, cherries fermented for 16 hours in tile tanks, were depulped, fully washed, and then dried on the raised beds of the solar dryer for an average of 16 days. The drying time is variable, as this year there was not much sun in general, but many days with high temperatures.vvvv


Nariño is one of Colombia’s 32 Departments. It shares a southern border with Ecuador and is home to thousands of smallholder coffee producing families. Colombia’s three ranges of Andean mountains converge in Nariño, presenting ideal altitudes and fertile soil for high grown Arabica production.

Nariño’s particular geography and proximity to coastal and land borders have historically transformed it into corridor for illicit trade routes, resulting in unwarranted violence against residents of remote mountain farms. Today, thanks to the particularly resilient and fearless spirit of Nariño’s farmers, the small region is a respected nucleus of coffee innovation.
