About the family

Coming from the department of Caldas, Leonel got in charge of the farm at the age of six, following his arrival in 1982 with his father. This land, a paternal legacy reflecting his farmer heritage, already housed coffee plantations when he took ownership. With a deep respect for the land, Leonel not only cultivates coffee but also commits to protecting the surrounding forest, wildlife, and water sources.
