Columbia Colombia

Colombia is a land and sea country located in the northern part of South America, rich in natural resources, volcanoes and rivers, and 51.9% of the country's forests.

The topography of Colombia is roughly divided into the western mountain area and the eastern plain area. The west is mainly the Andes, and there are many coastal plains; the east is mainly composed of Orinoco plain and Amazon plain. The Andes are divided into the eastern, central and western Cordillera mountains in Colombia.

Colombia is located in the tropics, and the climate varies according to the topography. The southern part of the eastern plain and the Pacific coast belong to the tropical rain forest climate, the mountains of 1000-2000 meters above sea level belong to the subtropical climate, and the northwest belongs to the savanna climate. High-altitude mountains, volcanic soil, a variety of climate, sufficient Rain Water and sunshine, is an ideal area for coffee cultivation.

Coffee producing area

Colombian coffee trees are mainly cultivated in the Andes, on steep slopes about 1300 meters above sea level, where the annual temperature is about 18 ℃ and the annual rainfall is 2000-3000 mm. Colombia also has three Codiella mountains extending north and south into the Andes, with mountain steps providing a diverse climate, so it is the harvest season all year round.

Colombia's main coffee producers include the provinces of Cauca (Cauca), Santander (Santander), Narino (Narino), Tolima (Tolima) and Huila (Huilan). There are two harvest seasons in a year, the main season is from October to January, and the secondary season is from April to July.

Tolima province (Tolima): Tolima Tolima, located in west-central Colombia, is the third largest coffee producing area in Colombia, accounting for 12% of Colombia's annual coffee production. Coffee is grown on hillsides with a calm elevation of 1544 meters. Coffee farms in this area are slightly larger than those in southern Colombia, about 10-15 hectares. In the Tolima area, there are many well-known coffee estates, such as Santa Ana Manor and Montreal Manor.

Montreal Manor (Montreal)

Montreal is owned by Duberney Cifuentes Fajardo, and Duberney currently owns two coffee farms, Montreal Manor (Montreal) and Spain Farm 1 (La Espana 1), which are managed by Duberney and his family and friends.

Duberney is a third-generation coffee producer who has been in the coffee industry for 19 years and started growing coffee by buying farms in 2014. Although the estate is relatively young, Duberney started competing in the COE Cup in Colombia in 2017, finishing sixth on her first participation, but it was a matching batch of Rose Summer Rain Kaddura. In 2018, the use of a single rose summer variety won the runner-up, while in 2023, the rose summer variety won the championship with 90.61 points.

The success is due to the fact that Duberney used to be a technician of Caravela tons, a well-known boutique coffee raw bean manufacturer, and gained rich experience in taking care of coffee trees and coffee processing technology, which was later applied to his own farm. At present, the manor also grows rose summer Geisha, Kaddura Caturra, Xi Zao Sidra and other varieties.
