La Juanita And DelAgua Coffee
La Juanita is a small, three hectare farm located in the Cienaga municipality of the Magdalena department near the village of La Paz. Farm owner, William Javier Segura Camacho inherited the farm from his father. As a child, William worked in coffee production with his father, learning techniques for ideal harvesting and processing for his specific region.
William's farm is part of the DelAgua Coffee Project; a community-based organization committed to water conservation in coffee production. Members work to minimize water use while also promoting biodiversity to build ecological resilience in the region.
DelAgua produces green coffee in La Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, a breathtaking region of Colombia with high mountains close to the ocean. The microclimate is as diverse as it is sacred to the farmers who live in the region. Several springs nourish the most unbelievable fauna and flora; freshwater is a resource and most treasured asset that coffee producers are committed to protect.
