Growing and producing specialty coffee is an opportunity for us to live with dignity and for this reason, we do it with passion and discipline” – Delfín Carvajal

An inspiring success story

Delfín Carvajal focused on optimizing the drying process of his specialty coffee and preserving its physical and sensory characteristics. To achieve this, he embarked on a project focused on mechanical drying, seeking financial resources for its implementation. He obtained seed capital through a project formulated with market, technical, financial, and organizational studies. 

With support from Metalcol, a Colombian company owned by Mr. Javier Rivera, Delfín made technical adjustments to ensure bean preservation during mechanical drying. This innovation led to project approval and loan disbursement, recognizing its potential impact on the country’s economy. Continuous audits confirmed the project’s success over time, enabling Delfín to expand his efforts in specialty coffee production.

Additionally, Delfín established an association of over 20 members in the same region, fostering variety planting and collaborative coffee marketing. This collective effort not only benefits individual farmers but also contributes to the local economy.

Delfín’s fermentation process for his natural coffee involves 14 hours in cherries, followed by 8-12 days on solar dryers. The process is completed with 32 hours of mechanical drying at 36°C.
