Finca El Higueron
San Isidro, La Plata, Huila, Colombia
Also in the Colombian Andes in the center of the Huila department near the small town of La Plata you find the Finca El Higueron from the Saavedra family at 1,750 meters. In the past fifty years they have expanded the finca from a small business with one hectare of land to a considerable size. The Finca El Higueron is a prime example of sustainable agriculture in harmony with nature - an entire hectare of land in the center of the finca is not used for coffee or other cultivation. They maintained a piece of natural rainforest protecting the area against soil erosion, which also gives other benefits to the surrounding areas of land.
The Saavedra family mainly grows coffee of the Castillo, Typica and Variedad Colombia varieties. You can order the their Delicado café at our store.
