Hacienda El Obraje is a truly stunning farm of the Guerrero family in the mountains of the Nariño department in Colombia, with coffee planted on the slopes descending to a river valley.
The nearly 100-hectare estate now cultivates coffee on only 25 hectares; the rest of the land has been converted into a natural forest reserve by Pablo Guerrero.

When Pablo first began planting coffee in the Tangua area outside  the city of Pasto in 2000, he cultivated more conventional varieties for the area and didn’t have a mill of his own.
By 2009 he had built a facility to process his own coffee and entered the specialty coffee market.
Transitioning to coffee production was risky because he was unsure how productive coffee cultivation would be at such high elevations (2200 masl), but the coffee trees flourished, and now others are following in his footsteps.

Pablo brought Gesha seeds to El Obraje from Panama in 2011, starting with 2,000 trees. Four years later he planted other 7,000 trees. Gesha trees are planted at the distance of 3 meters between them to give their broad-stature branches room to grow.
Gesha cherries are selectively harvested when they are at full maturity and have a red-purple color. The climate and terrain of Obraje farm – situated near many volcanic mountains, with  rocky soil, rich with minerals – are major contributing factors to the unique cup profile of coffee grown here.

This Gesha lot coffee underwent Natural processing at the mill at El Obraje. All processing times vary according to the variables of climate at the time of harvest.
