Eli Chilcon has been working with specialty coffee for over 10 years. He and his wife live and work on the farm La Montana, a small-medium sized plot with 4 hectares of growing area that produces Caturra only. During the harvest months of July to October, Eli hires the help of an additional 8 staff. The farm is very high up at 1800 masl and it is becoming clearer that climate change and fluctuating temperatures are producing problems for plots at this altitude. Droughts are becoming more frequent, so one of the key ways to help mitigate risks from climate has been the installation of shade trees around the growing areas. Effective irrigation systems   and effective fertiliser dispersal to maintain soil health are also used.
