Finca Galeras is located on the slopes of the Galeras Volcano at 2033m above sea level making this is one of the highest farms we buy from in Nariño. The trees on the farm are all between ten and eighteen years old. Roberto has preserved the trees on the farm rather than replanting as he believes with maintenance and good pruning there is no need to replace the older trees. Despite all the difficulties of the pandemic, one benefit for Roberto has been being able to share more time and coffee knowledge with his son, Jeison Andrés Melo. Roberto is very grateful and happy because his son's support has made it easier for him to work on this harvest during these demanding times. This year there has been an excess of rain, and as final ascent to the farm is by foot, access to the farm has been a bit more difficult than usual. Roberto teamed up with two neighbours: Ezequiel Macario and Juan Carlos Pascuasa, who also deliver coffee to us. The three worked together to get find a way to get their coffee down the mountain to us.
