Dionicio Gómez owns two farms in the municipality of Chachagüí, in the vereda (or municipality) of Casabuy, in the southwestern department of Nariño, where he grows five varieties of coffee. Separated by a dirt road and a 30-minute walk, Finca El Guayabo is the higher property and Finca La Cocha, the lower property. The latter is located on the banks of the Rio Bermudez. Don Dionicio lives on La Cocha - Cocha is the Quechua word for "waters" - where he has planted Castillo, Caturra, Colombia, Typica, and Maragogype. At 1,900 meters above sea level is El Guayabo, where Dionicio has 2,500 Castillo trees. When the harvest begins, the cherries from El Guayabo are brought down on horses after selection. Don Dionicio is proud of his work. On our last visit, he told us that he has never had a coffee rejected by the local cooperative CafeOccidente, our ally, and partner. Their offices and SCA-certified cupping lab are located in the departmental capital of Pasto, about a 40-minute drive from Chachagüí.



When asked about his post-harvest processing - known in Colombia as "el beneficio" - Dionicio replied that he had to invent it "toco inventarlo" - through trial and error. After his seven pickers - whom he rehires each year for their experience in carefully selecting coffee cherries by hand - have harvested the day's crop, the cherries are de-pulped and fermented in the traditional way for 18 hours. The beans are then thoroughly washed and laid out on raised beds to dry for six days.



We are grateful to be able to work with production partners like Don Dionicio Gómez, not only for his hard work and determination but also for his proud, innovative spirit.
