Monte Bonito is a small settlement on the slopes of the Cerro Bravo; the town follows many of the traditions of the campesinos that inhabited the High Andes of this part of Colombia.

Coffee growers from the surrounding area typically farm between 1 and 3 hectares; each farmer takes control of all aspects of the harvest themselves – asking for help from their neighbours when needed. 

During the harvest the coffee is picked, de-pulped and left to ferment for between 16 and 18 hours. The following  day the coffee will be washed, ready for drying. Some of the producers have ‘eldas’ – drying beds on the roof of the house; others ‘carros quindianos’ – drying beds on a shelving system. Typically the coffee is dried for between 10 and 14 days, depending on the weather.
