"My dream is to be the best natural coffee producer in Colombia".
Coffee Producer Hertson Bernal
A glimpse of its history and its coffee experience
I am dedicated to coffee growing, because I have worked in coffee plantations since I was a child.
In 2006 I bought the La Esperanza farm and became a producer.
A critical point for me is not fertilizing on time and the fruit not filling out completely.
It is with the drying process that we finish our work of coffee production.
A moment of special intensity is the cupping test to know how our coffee expresses itself in all its aspects. Toasting and tasting the fruits of our efforts is a great thing.
