Santa Rosa's People


During the last 9 years the farm has been under Don Orlando's care. He and his family moved to this land due to the lack of opportunity and the violence in his birth place Natagaima, Tolima. When he made a deal to buy the land and back then, it did not have coffee and it was not being cared for. Don Orlando got interested in coffee and knew he needed to learn a lot about it in order to make it work, so he embarked in a learning adventure that is bringing him and his family the joy of a work well done.

Located in El Tiber rural zone, Santa Rosa has 4 hectareas in total and only 2 dedicated to coffee. Now the farm is producing 1875 pounds of coffee a year.
