Farmer Background

Like many teenagers in the San Agustin region, Jair Samboni because working at a picker in the fields of larger estates in Huila. Year after year, he began to save up his money and soon had enough to purchase a farm, El Lago.


Jair produces honey-processed Caturra.   Throughout the season, Jair harvest up to 4 separate lots of coffee which are fermented for 12-24 hours and then is laid out on drying beds for up to 35 days before the coffees are ready to ship.  

With his coffees reaching scores between 86-88 points, Jair has seen the potential by working hard to ensure that his farm is maintained and that only the ripest cherries are picked for processing.  


Exporter Background:

Colors of Nature(CNC) was established in 2007 by Felipe Ramirez as a pilot project to educate coffee farmers in impoverished/conflict regions of southern Colombia on cultivating quality coffee.  They have succeeded in implementing modern farm technologies on smallholder farms throughout the country and just inaugurated a new research facility this year. Currently working in 13 provinces( including Huila, Narino, Cauca, Risaralda and Cesar), Colors of Nature and its nearly 1,200 smallholder farmers are producing up to 60 micro and 15 high-premium lots each year with majority of these coffees sold to Japan, Hong Kong, Australia  and North America.


With a portfolio that includes washed, naturals and honey processes; we are confident that CNC can provide the highest quality micro-lots from the region.
