Marleny Olaya Murcia is a farmer in some of the highest parts of Planadas, Tolima.  Her farm, El Balsero, is situated at over 2100 MASL in the vereda of Berlin.  Olaya comes from a coffee farming family and says that she inherited her coffee culture from her parents, who taught her most of what she knows about growing and processing. 
She purchased her first hectare in 2002, which she says was not an easy feat, and has since been producing exceptionally great coffees.  In addition to producing coffee, Olaya is a determined environmental advocate and is committed to educating the next generation on sustainability.
