Bibiana Mena and her husband Diego López have farmed La Cumbre since 2010. Diego is an agronomist by profession who grew up learning about coffee from his aunt and developed his knowledge of coffee production during his time working with the National Federation of Coffee Growers of Colombia. La Cumbre, which means “The Summit”, is the second farm that Bibiana and Diego bought and it was bought in instalments, bit by bit, until they had around 50 hectares. So the farm is a combination of five sections: Cidral, La Cumbre, Casa Vieja, Montecillo and Loma Verde. Of the 50 hectares, 20 hectares are planted with around 80,000 coffee plants. In 2017, they built a small cable car on a zip-line to make it easier to move coffee cherry from the steepest and most remote parts of the farm, move coffee pulp – the left-over parts of the coffee cherry after it has been washed – across the farm to be used as fertiliser, and even to take breakfast and lunch down to the picking teams at the lower areas of the farm! Bibiana, Diego, and their daughter Isabella have worked hard over the years, and these efforts have been recognised with several coffee competition wins.
