Our ongoing “Women in Coffee” series is focused on showcasing a new female farmer with each edition. Our intention is to emphasize the crucial role played by women in Colombian agriculture and to provide examples of leaders in their respective communities.
Maria Mercy inherited her parents’ farm in Ortega, Tolima, and has since raised the bar for the quality of coffee output considerably, alongside her son Edinson. Maria herself is a mother of 3, leader of a coffee-growing association, and has been an important producing partner for Devoción for several years. This batch has sweet and tart notes of caramel apple and cherry, and lemongrass undertones.
