Description

Finca El Porvenir is located in Urrao, Antioquia, Colombia and sits at an elevation of 1,850 m.a.s.l. The farm is managed by Gloria Cecilia Sepulveda and consists of 1 hectare where she has planted 1,600 Caturra Chiroso trees. Among the coffee trees, Gloria grows mandarins, oranges, plantains and bananas, as well as some native species that provide good shade for her crops. She produces washed coffees, which she processes by very selectively picking only the ripest cherries, then de-pulping and fermenting them in stainless steel tanks for 4 days, and then drying them in a greenhouse for approximately 8 to 12 days, depending on the weather.  
 
Gloria learned about coffee from her neighbor, Doña Carmen Montoya (a COE winner), for whom she has worked for 20 years. Their bond and collaboration is very strong. Gloria got divorced and was left alone with her son Juan Manuel, who is now 14 years old. Carmen was kind enough to give Gloria part of her land and, with the support of the community, built a new house for her. 
 
Her farm depends entirely on her and her son's work, and she divides her time between her farm and Doña Carmen's. During the harvest, she picks for Carmen, and as all the workers are near her farm, they all help her collect her harvest much faster than she could do it alone. She is a very dedicated woman and in 2022 she placed 9th in The Coffee Quest’s Antioquia Mágico competition.
