Gilmer Mejia operates the beautiful Finca Ecológica in Agua Colorada, a farm his father, Filadelpo Cordova Mejia, acquired for growing coffee in 1990. It is a 7-hectare plot, on which 4 hectares grow Caturra and other common varieties. Gilmer is sure to pick all his coffees ripe and by hand, as they mature under the protection of wild shade trees. He uses compost and guano to fertilize his farm, and uses no herbicides. Gilmer is a young and innovative producer who is committed to and passionate about quality in every way, from the management of his farm to the final taste in the cup.
