About the family

José Hernando Lugo arrived in the region due to the opportunity to acquire a property in the Caquetá department. He and his family came from the Huila department. They decided to implement coffee cultivation on their farm as an alternative to combat the expansion of illicit crops. They are passionate about coffee and have maintained a sustainable organic cultivation for several years.
