El Diviso Farm was founded in 1997 by Mr. Jose Uribe Lasso in the Normandia district. It is about a 30-minute drive northwest of Huila's Brucellas, Pitalito region of Colombia. Spanning about 14 hectares, at 1770 masl, the farm harvests just once a year – from October through to December.
By 2022, Jose had encouraged his three sons (Jonathan 29 years old, Adrian 25 years old and Nestor 23 years old) to become involved in farm management and production. The three sons are very enthusiastic and actively working to introduce the latest manufacturing methods. In particular the family is experimenting with long fermentation times, oxidation, anaerobic fermentation and re-application of mucilage juices to the cherry during processing.
All the coffee is handpicked at its most ripe stage, then naturally dried under controlled condition and homogeneous temperatures and to give durability to the coffee and preserve the quality.
Surrounding the coffee plantation and mill the family keep a large area of natural reserve that approaches 5 hectares, where they take care of and
preserve the natural flora and fauna to ensure diversity of the landscape.
