Tolima is quite remote with a long history of armed insurgence, however rich with sandy clay soil full of nutrients. Coffee farmers in this region are mostly small with the average farm size of 3 hectares. Coffee is usually farmed intercropping with other fruits, yuca and plantain to provide income during off season. Guayacan and walnut are commonly planted to provide shade to coffee trees.
