The Farm

Beyond simply being Raw Material's central meeting point and office, El Fénix was designed with the long-term vision of three distinct, complementary, supporting businesses sharing one space.

Namely, El Fenix is an organic rare-variety coffee forest and post-harvest lab. A space for experimenting and gathering data first-hand on new practical farming. Techniques, adaption to organic production, and selective breeding programs. To host farm management and cupping courses for producers and roasters, and to gain roasters’ attention.

El Fénix farm is located in the eastern municipality of Quindío, Colombia in Calarcá. It faces west toward the Cauca Valley and the central mountain range. The farm has ideal climate conditions with a strong sun reflection off the valley and an average rainfall of 2,275mm a year, in addition to natural spring falls which provide water for the farm’s needs.
