Finca Carrizo will be the third coffee to arrive from our competition in Nariño this year. Omaira Zambrano bought Finca Carrizo with her husband Jesús Morales in 2006. At the time it was being used to keep pasture for horses with just a small amount of coffee planted. They grew beans for a while but now concentrate exclusively on coffee. This year Omaira plans to continue to refurbish their wet-mill and finish planting more trees - Carrizo is a small farm (in comparison to other areas of Colombia) and they need to make full use of all the land they have.
