Coffee Story: 

In 1995 the Bayter Family embarked on an agricultural adventure at El Vergel farm situated in Huila; a department in southern Colombia, spanned by the Andes mountains and home to the towering Nevado del Huila volcano. With passion and dedication they began to grow avocados, making their farm one of the most productive in the country. However, in 2006 avocado prices dropped sharply due to a disease that severely affected the crop. 

Between 2009 and 2010 Martha Bayter decided to diversify her crops and save costs by introducing coffee. The Bayters planted varieties such as catimore, red and yellow caturra, challenging the limits of their  knowledge.  Caturra is a natural mutation of the Bourbon variety and is characterized as a com­pact plant with good yielding poten­tial but  very high sus­cep­ti­bil­i­ty to cof­fee leaf rust. 

As interest in coffee grew, the Bayters embarked on a journey of empirical knowledge about pulping and different methods of fermentation. Together with Nelson Moya, a coffee enthusiast who showed them different processing equipment, they immersed themselves in the search for specialty coffees from Colombia and certified their farm as "Rainforest" by the prestigious "Federación Nacional de Cafeteros'' Their dedication and love for coffee began to bear fruit. In 2016, they met Miguel Jimenez, an expert in varietal and specialty coffees, who guided the Bayters in planting varieties such as Geisha, Java, Pacamara, Red Bourbon and Laurina, giving the first productions of these coffees in 2017, marking a milestone in their trajectory. 

As time progressed, the farm was modernized, and in 2018, natural coffee processes were implemented, such as aerobic and anaerobic, and silos were acquired for coffee storage. Little by little they became pioneers of innovation and quality. Currently the Bayter family carries out exhaustive research on bacteria and yeasts to control fermentation together with tireless experimentation of processes, reaching unprecedented levels of excellence in their coffees. Today El Vergel has expanded to have more than 28 varietals spread throughout its lands and is characterized for being the first coffee farm in Colombia to develop the kOJI fermentation process, a process that has completely changed the way of developing green coffee.
