Carlos Estrella’s father used to be a coffee producer and always encouraged Carlos to continue with the family tradition. Carlos knew that he wanted to do something related to coffee in his life. He was born and raised in Nariño, a region known for its unique and delicious coffee and he has always been related to its production since he can remember. In 2010, Carlos started taking over his family’s farm, La Estrella, a name which honours the family’s name. His father is still very present on the farm, overseeing all the agronomical management. Meanwhile, Carlos is learning all about the quality process. He is learning to cup, in order to understand what makes his coffee great and what are the improvement opportunities. Carlos believes that what makes his coffee and his farm so special is the altitude, the natural reserves that surround the farm, and his huge passion for the product. Carlos feels proud of the quality he has been able to produce, but most importantly, he feels proud because he is aware that everything that he has learned about coffee production and processes, has taken him where he is today, because he knows what he’s doing and he understands every single step of the process. His goal is achieving that 100% of his coffee is sold as specialty.
