FINCA VILLA NUEVA | COLOMBIA
Citric Lemon, Wild Berries, Orange Blossom
Washed and Sun-Dried
El Poleo, between Gambita and Suaita, Santander
Don Jose as he is best known in the region of El Poleo runs very successfully Finca Villa Nueva, a 120 hectares’ piece of land divided into various activities being coffee one of them. Jose Angel Gomez travels between Santander's capital Bucaramanga, Bogota and Finca Villa Nueva regularly.
At present all of his 6 hectares are organic shaded coffee and Don Jose is in the process of obtaining the relevant certifications. Jose bought the farm 6 years ago, and has invested time and effort to repurpose a patch for a combination of coffee, honey, plantain and even cassava. He is a true believer of preserving Colombia's biodiversity so most of Villa Nueva farm still remains virgin forest where his cattle mingles with free range chickens and the crystalline waters from Rio Tolota which guarantees his freshwater fish farm thrives.
Don Jose with his brother Don Kiko are making a real success in producing an
outstanding coffee that without a doubt will continue to improve year on year with the addition of new varieties planned for the future.”
