The farm is situated in the beautiful region of Jardin in Antioquia La Julia is owned by JESÚS MARÍA POSADA POSADA and his wife Olga del Socorro Restrepo. They were able to buy the farm 15 years ago after they decided they wanted to own their own farm after both working as pickers prior. The farm was already named La Julia after the previous owner and they decided to leave it this way as Olga’s mother is also named Julia. They live on the farm with their two children who are both studying.
During the harvest they have help with the collection of the cherry with local pickers who JESÚS closely controls the quality they pick to ensure ripe cherry is collected and separated. Once the cherry has been pulped it is then placed in tanks for 18 hours of dry fermentation and turned 3 times in this period. From here the coffee is then dried in a parabolic drier for between 10 -14 days.
