FARMLEVEL STORY

Luz Divia Fierro and her husband Elpidio grow coffee at their finca El Meson, located in the vereda of Berlin, in the municipality of Acevedo, Huila. Both Luz and Elpidio have nicknames by which they are known to their nearest and dearest; Luz goes by Sandy and Elpidio goes by Pillo. The couple inherited the farm from Pillo’s father Ángel, who is also a

coffee producer, and farms in a neighboring vereda. We spoke with Pillo recently and he explained that him and Sandy work together as a team but they sell their coffee under her name. El Meson’s soil is mostly loam, with a few pockets of sand. There is an area of protected forest reserve on the property, as well as a waterfall. The landscape is mostly hilly and steep, with parcels of flatter land. The family employs five workers to carry out non-harvestchores such as weeding and fertilizing, the latter of which they do three times a year with both chemical and organic fertilizers. During the harvest season they employ up to 15pickers from the departments of Cauca and Tolima, as well as a few locals, to carry out the careful, hand-selection of the Pink Bourbon cherry. Luz Divia “Sandy” Fierro and to Elpidio “Pillo” Carrillo represent a younger generation of coffee growers from southern Huila, who are dedicated to producing high-quality coffee and committed to honoring the important legacy of their parents and grandparents.
