ABOUT

This coffee is produced by Luis Alfonso and his wife Maria at a very high altitude of about 2,000 metres. The family acquired the property plot by plot, borrowing money each time as soon as their production allowed them to do so. They now own this beautiful farm, at which they have been able to raise their 7 children.
Since winning 4th place in the Best Cup of Antioquia contest, he has realised that the future lies in specialty coffee.

The history of the producer

The story
of the producer

Luis Alfonso Murillo Hernandez and his wife Maria Leticia live on their farm at the top of the Caicedo mountain. Luis’ father was also a producer. He bought this farm, plot by plot, borrowing a little from his bank each time. Which was no easy task given the high interest rates and the prices at which his coffees were sold, which sometimes did not even cover production costs. As a result of great patience and determination, however, and despite this context, he was able to grow and successfully raise his 7 children.

In 2014, Luis participated in the Best Cup of Antioquia contest. He won 4th place, and is now more determined than ever to continue producing high-quality coffee.
“I have my sights set on specialty coffee, because it allows me to achievesomething not everyone is capable of. My farm is situated in a unique setting and we work hard to produce a better coffee.”
