Moises Chaguala lives at his farm El Recuerdo with his wife and 2 sons, all of which work on the farm which is about 6 hectairs. Grown in the Huila region which is one of the most well-known coffee growing areas of Colombia. The Department of Huila is situated for the most part in the Colombian Massif, harboring Colombia’s second highest peak, the Nevado Del Huila Volcano. Indeed, the volcanic soil is hard to avoid in these parts of the Andes, which makes it fertile ground in which to grow coffee. Also contributing to the fertile soil is the Magdalena River, Colombia’s largest stream. Due to the weather, coffee production and harvest occurs for the most of the year, allowing imports of fresh coffee almost constantly. Ironically, the ideal growing conditions in the region, the high rainfall and humidity, makes it hard to dry and process coffee.
The Natural-Hidrahoney is a unique process in which they ferment cherries (without depulping) under water for 60 hours, they then drain the excess water from the coffee and depulp as honey. They are dried in marquesinas – solar dryers on raised beds.
Colombia is one of the biggest coffee producing countries in the world, along with Brazil, Vietnam and Indonesia. Coffee was introduced to Colombia in the early 1800s. The Colombian Coffee Federation has done a commendable job in promoting the specialty coffees of Colombia. Colombian coffee beans are rich in flavour, heavy bodied, has a bright acidity, and is intensely aromatic.
