Finca El Mirador is owned and operated by Osito
founders, Jose Jadir Losada and Kyle Bellinger. El
Mirador is situated in the village of Picuma, just
west of the beautiful Rio Suaza. When Kyle and Jose
began their partnership at El Mirador, the farm was
11.7 hectares. Since then the farm has just about
doubled to 23 hectares. The village of Picuma is
special to the Osito family because Jose grew up
there. En route to El Mirador, the Osito team will
often stop and say hello to Jose's parents who live
on the main road in Picuma. Although Jose now
lives with his family in Garzon, Picuma will always
be home. El Mirador has 2 year-round workers, one
of whom is Jose's father-in-law, Carlos. However,
during the harvest, El Mirador ramps their team up
to about 25 pickers. Finding pickers in this region
of Colombia is not an easy feat, as there is more
lucrative work in coca (the plant from which
cocaine is derived) in nearby Caquetá. Kyle and Jose
hope to encourage pickers to step away from this
industry through offering wages far above the
national average.
