Alexander Vargas

The farmer

In 2009, Alexander Vargas transformed Finca La Piragua from basic land into its current state, featuring a residence, a coffee processing area, micro-beneficio fermentation tanks, and drying space.

Collaborating with local families and his wife, Lidia, they established a small school, showcasing his commitment to community development.

Alexander is always seeking ways to improve his work on the farm and innovating processing methods. He now uses fermentation barrels for efficiency and cleanliness, fermenting for up to 48 hours with meticulous rinsing and methodical drying. Alexander is responsible for coffee tree harvesting, and together with Lidia, they oversee the fermentation and drying processes.
