This coffee comes from Huila, a part of Colombia that’s known for high quality, fruit-driven coffee.

Laureano Chavarro has been close to coffee farming since he was a child, when he watched his parents working on their farm. Once he grew up, he decided to buy a piece of land and start producing coffee on his own.

From there, his journey to producing specialty coffee began when he joined the coffee group San Roque in the nearby town of Oporapa.

Laureano’s harvests were identified by our sourcing partners in Colombia at the time as having very high potential, and was supported in his efforts to take better care of processing at the farm to further improve the harvest quality.

With coffee as the main income for his family, he says it was specialty’s higher prices which motivated him to pursue this new approach.

Today, he is proud because he has received these premiums and been able to invest in the infrastructure of his farm and home. He works with his son on the farm and his biggest challenge is to continue improving his quality.
