Finca El Paraiso, as the name itself suggests, is the exceptional heaven of growing and processing coffee. Diego Bermudez is the man behind and a true genius, whose work is constantly filled with innovative ideas. Aside from him, his family shares a similar entrepreneurial, scientific and enthusiastic spirit.
Diego Samuel and his family have worked together to create a range of high-quality coffees with unparalleled consistency. The crew consists of 4 family members, and 8 employees, that focus on implementing technologies in all aspects of coffee production.
They follow the fertilization programs strictly according to the necessities of their trees and they have developed advanced fermentation, washing techniques and using self-collected micro-organisms. Diego has even developed his own environmentally friendly driers that work on a condensation principle.
Diego Bermudez is the true farmer of innovation whose approach is purely scientific. He was one of the firsts in Colombia to start experimenting with fermentation processes, by adding different types of microorganisms and yeasts. By now Diego has developed more than 10 replicable protocols (recipes), so he can produce his profiles on demand.
The basis for this is a strict regimen of almost industrial-style processing where cleanliness and a controlled environment are key. All cherries are washed thoroughly with filtered water to remove all microorganisms present on the skins. After that, he introduces his own recipes of microorganisms into the fermentation process based on a organic compound analysis done on the the cherry contents. He then controls the level of fermentation by keeping track of temperature, PH, pressure and other environment variables.
