Robinson Rozo is one of this season’s revelations, his dedication and specialism in the growing and processing of the Geisha variety has led him to win the Huila Mágico Competition. He represents the younger generation willing to invest effort and time into producing high quality coffee. Which is what you can certainly find in a cup of coffee from Finca El Vergel.
Based in Algeciras, Huila, Finca El Vergel is now run by Robinson Rozo, but this family farm has been producing coffee for over 30 years. It sits at an altitude of approximately 1.920 meters above sea level and extends for a total area of 68 hectares, of which 15 hectares are only dedicated to coffee plants.
Robinson was trained in coffee processing at a very young age. He owes most of his skills to his father, Libardo Roso, and to El Sena, one of the local technical schools where his father also attended. Their passion for coffee is outstanding. Prior to growing his own trees, Robinson first learned how to cup and worked hard with his father on harvesting Caturra plants.
The process – Robinson takes two days to pick each lot, which one part is fermented for 36 hours and the second part (picked on the next day) is fermented for 12hours. Then they are blended together. They are depulped and fermented anaerobically in bags for 26 hours. Then it’s dried naturally on patios for 20-30 days.
