About Emma Chantre

Emma Chantre is a well-known coffee producer in Palmichal who has been developing her business since 1976. Like so many other producers, Emma learned how to cultivate coffee while supporting its ecosystem through generations of ancestral knowledge. Her farm, Finca Buena Vista, is 4 hectares and filled with a diverse set of native fruit trees, flowering plants, and coffee varieties of Caturra and Colombia. We are thrilled to have Emma’s coffee again this season and look forward to more during the years to come.

Coffee producers of Inzá often share similar values and traditions. Typically handed down through inheritance, each farm is 1-2 hectares and produces 1300 kilos of parchment coffee per season on average. Community members or day laborers are hired during the harvest season while each family maintains their own farm throughout the year. Cherry is processed for defects, depulped and dried on site. Parchment coffee is loaded onto a mule for transport or driven to the nearest dry mill.

When coffee does not require immediate attention most producers focus on growing food for their community. When the opportunity arises some take action on improving construction of their processing areas or homes. Growing coffee is a family tradition and is one of the most exported agricultural crops next to cut flowers in Colombia.
