Las Codornices

The Story

Diana and Hector are an example of a new approach in coffee production. Their farms and management style are focused on maximum efficiency and sustainability. We’re super happy to work with the Ovalles extremely close, being able to help them create a model that not only rewards the highest quality, but also helps them stay on top of the current trends and demands of the consuming side of the coffee market.

Las Codornices is one out of three Ovalle’s farms and their command centre. A trip to the farm is not like your typical coffee excursion. You won’t pass any coffee trees, infrastructure, beneficios or pickers from other farms waving
to you and smiling. The area is so dry that nobody else ever thought about establishing coffee production over there.

From their house you can grasp a beautiful view at a mountain range, some coffee trees and two retention tanks Diana and Hector have built to harvest precious rainwater to use it for irrigation. Each row of coffee trees within a 9-hectares area is ready to be irrigated at any time. Damn impressive!

Since water in this part of the region is a huge issue, they very rarely proces coffee as washed, focusing on getting expertise in honeys and naturals. And the results are fantastic year by year while we work with the Ovalles. The fruity character and deep articulation of their coffees amaze us every time by the cupping table. We’re proud to perform a detailed quality control during and after Las Codornices’ harvest.

The farm is located at around 1900 masl and the cultivars grown are: bourbon, caturra, typica, pacamara, maragogype, geisha and villa sarchi. They also diversify the income by planting various crops like hibiscus or lemons.

Thanks to Diana’s and Hector’s openness, commitment and great energy we’ve managed to make Las Codornices’ lots one of the main highlights on our coffee menu!
