COFFEE Las Lomitas
ABOUT WHERE IT GROWS
La Vega region was a coffee growing area, until the 1980s when the “Roya” (a fungus that attacks the leaves of the coffee tree) arrived and wiped out a large part of the crops. Unfortunately the farmers began to see in cattle raising a profitable opportunity. For twenty years now, after finding some varieties resistant to “Roya”, coffee has returned as a means of subsistence for many families in the region.
Las Lomitas farm is a clear example of this phenomenon. After many years, coffe begins to replace the pastures that had been used for raising cattle. In this farm, two micro lots have been made with a total of 2200 coffee trees. Although it does not have certifications, the cultivation in this farm is worked under the Demeter philosophy, which consists in the use of so-called biodynamic preparations for soil and plant treatment.
Taking into account that it is a micro lot, the coffee from Las Lomitas farm is sold exclusively to customers who value organic production and respect the environment in their practices.
