The seven-hectare farm sits in the department of Huila, a renowned coffee growing region in Colombia. The department's coffee committee has invested resources and training into the region for the last ten years. This has led to enthusiasm in the production of specialty coffee, and created a culture of quality-focused production the region is renowned for.
