Coffee comes from one of the few large farms that can be found in the very famous Huila Region. It has a great consistency in the cup throughout the harvest, thanks to the attention paid by Cesar Perez (the owner) to good harvesting, fertilizing and picking practices, which assures good quality.
Cesar is a young 31 year old farmer whose father passed the farm down to him 15 years ago when it was only 5 hectares in size. Cesar and his family have worked very hard, taking quality very seriously in order to make the most of the farm’s location, which benefits from exceptional soil, light and high altitude. The farm has both a high rate of production per hectare and an exceptional yield, features that are difficult to find together on one farm.
