Farmer Wilmar Guarnizo
Among the highlands of the municipality of Tarqui, Huila, you find a group of farms owned by ten siblings, the Guarnizo Family. Each member of the family has their own farm and their own families. Some of them are neighbors, creating a village of just the family, and some of them lie in more remote areas of the municipality. However, all nine of them have the same objective, to produce some of the best coffee in Tarqui. The Guarnizo Family has always been an example of family work, union, and partnership.
Wilmar, one of the Guarnizo brothers, inherited the farm La Vega from his father in 2002 with not even one coffee tree on the land. Wilmar is the pilot of the whole family, he took the role of leader and guided and educated all his siblings in the processes. They would even share their fermentation and drying stations with each other. “We are ten siblings. When there is just a little coffee on the trees, at the beginning or at the end of the harvest, we all go to each other’s farms and help with the picking and post harvest processes,” says Wilmar. In Wilmar’s home, everyone is involved. His wife Tania and his daughter take care of the fermentation, hand-sorting and selection of cherries, as well as of the drying stations. Wilmar, with the help of his brothers, takes care of the coffee trees, growing new varieties and works to conserve the local forests. Wilmar promised his wife that he would build her a house, at first, she didn’t believe him, but now, thanks to the high prices achieved by his coffees, they now have a beautiful house of their own.
