The story of “La Pomarrosa” is a story of my life and my family, this coffee farm is located in the beautiful Chunchuca Town Center in the Colasay district at an impressive altitude of 1850 mas.
Since I was young I always dreamed of growing coffee and following in my parents' footsteps. They taught me everything I know about coffee and instilled in me the love and passion for this noble profession. That heritage became my greatest treasure and main source of inspiration.
The days in “La pomarrosa” have never been easy. The weather at these altitudes is unpredictable, and rain can complicate the coffee drying process. Caring for plants is constant work, and each harvest season is a challenge that we face with determination and sacrifice.
Despite the obstacles we have managed to make “La Pomarrosa” prosper under our care. I have invested years of life, tireless effort and valuable resources in this farm that improves the quality of coffee. The bourbon variety we grow has become our specialty and each cup is the result of our dedication.
“La pomarrosa” is not only a place of work, it is a legacy that I am building for future generations of the Fernández Silva family. Here my children will learn the lessons that my parents taught me with all love. Each coffee bean is a constant reminder of the sacrifice and passion we have invested in this land.
Our family, the Fernández Silvas. I started in this business thanks to my parents, they transmitted to me everything I know about the coffee process and most importantly, the love with which we work is my greatest inheritance and I am grateful for it.
Coffee cultivation has been fundamental in our lives, allowing us to lead a comfortable life. In addition to that, I was able to complete my university studies and graduate as an “Agricultural Producer,” an achievement that fills me with pride. It was 5 years of constant effort, sacrifice and responsibility since I had to combine work on the farms with studies and supporting my parents.
On my farm, the harvest time of bourbon variety, which is our specialty, is 4 to 5 months, normally from May to September, and our farms have organic certification. However, we face challenges such as constant rains that make it difficult to dry coffee and problems with the availability of labor.
My family and I are excited about the future that holds for us in this exciting world of coffee, together we are committed to cultivating and sharing the best cup of coffee possible.
