Inmaculada Coffee Farms, a specialty coffee producer, is deeply rooted in a rich history of quality and sustainability. The Holguín-Ramos family, with their extensive agricultural background, embarked on this coffee venture in 2010, aiming to positively impact the community and environment of Pichindé. The farm, nestled in the heart of Colombia’s Andes mountains, is enveloped by the natural splendor of the Farallones Natural Park.
The farm is celebrated for its exotic coffee varieties, including the refined Geisha, the towering Sudan Rume, and the unique Laurina, among others. These varieties are grown in sync with nature, adhering to biodynamic farming practices. This means the farm abstains from synthetic fertilizers and agrochemicals, ensuring the ecosystem’s integrity is maintained.

Inmaculada Coffee Farms also spearheads the Fellows’ Program, a collaborative initiative with coffee growers in Cauca aimed at enhancing their living conditions. This program underscores the farm’s ethical and responsible approach to coffee production.
The coffee beans undergo a meticulous process from handpicking to natural anaerobic carbonic maceration and parabolic drying, ensuring top-tier quality. The farm’s dedication to freshness and quality extends to milling and packing, where coffee is vacuum-sealed to retain its exquisite flavors.

Inmaculada Coffee Farms distinguishes itself not only through its exceptional coffee but also through its commitment to crafting a product deeply connected to the Colombian land and its people. This commitment offers a magical coffee experience that has garnered international acclaim and awards. For more details on their offerings and practices, their website is a valuable resource.

The Fellows Farm Project is a testament to this commitment. In early 2022, they had the opportunity to meet remarkable coffee producers in the Cauca region. Despite rising prices, these producers were struggling with their coffee production due to climate change.

Following this meeting, they devised a plan beneficial to both parties. They began by purchasing small batches of coffee cherries from these producers and processing them at their farm. This relieved the producers from post-harvest processes and provided them with a bonus for the quality cherries they harvested. Their clients were amazed when they tasted these coffees; some even had the chance to meet the producers and were thrilled to be part of this project, supplying, roasting, and serving it at their cafés.
This successful venture led to the formal execution of what is now known as the Fellow’s Farms Program in mid-2022.

The Fellows’ Farms Program, an Inmaculada Coffee Farms initiative, aims to improve farmers’ quality of life by enhancing their agronomical and picking practices. This is achieved by combining it with Inmaculada’s expertise and improving their price point, enabling them to meet specialty coffee standards. The program also aims to showcase the producers to international markets with full traceability, ensuring their hard work and effort are recognized. This collaborative approach allows them to deliver excellent coffees from various neighboring producers.

They are currently collaborating with a group of farmers in the municipalities of Tambo, Piendamó, and Caldono in the Cauca department. Together, they account for around 60 hectares of Colombian common varieties planted in an agroforestry concept with trees and shrubs, providing protection for their crops against adverse weather conditions.
