Sandra Milena Mora and Hector Coy own Finca El Porvenir located in Palestina Huila.  Although Hector’s father is also a coffee grower, it was only in 2007 that they became coffee farmers. Investing their savings and purchasing 9 hectares of land, about 4 kilometers from the town of Palestina, where they also own a general store. The climate in this area is influenced by its the proximity to the Reserva Forestal Cueva de Los Guacharos and jungles to the south.

In 2013 a severe leaf rust attack almost finished their coffee plants. Because they are against the use of herbicides they became early adopters in Huila of the variety Tabi, a rust resistant plant which also works excellent with their bio-fertilizers. Tabi also has the benefit of tasting delicious. We find this coffee to be predominately fruit driven, lots of red berries with bright acidity, buts its also balanced with flavours of chocolate and coconut.

P.S The name “tabi” means “good” in the Guambiano dialect, a native Colombian Dialect
