Jorge Elias is a remarkable 32-year-old coffee producer who was born in the La Armenia village and currently owns a coffee farm there. At the age of 12, he took on the responsibility of managing the farm after his father's passing, and his passion for coffee has been evident ever since. Although he only studied until the third grade due to his involvement in fieldwork during his childhood, Jorge has become a proficient physical analyst and coffee taster at ASOPEP.
Jorge has been producing top-quality coffees that have been used in coffee competitions in Colombia for several years. Currently, he is focused on developing unique protocols for producing processed and varietal coffees, always striving for consistency and differentiation in his products.
What sets Jorge apart is his farm, El Jardín, located in the La Armenia village at an elevation of 1840 meters above sea level. The farm benefits from ideal agro-climatic conditions for coffee production, processing, and drying, thanks to its strategic location and natural shade from trees such as Cambulos, Dormilon, Guamo, and Gualandays. In addition to implementing meticulous protocols to enhance cup quality, Jorge also utilizes advanced tools to measure temperature, Brix degrees, fermentation times, and more, resulting in exceptional coffees with unique and distinct flavors.
