About the family

Coming from the enchanting Florida, Valle, Rafael embarked on a journey with his family, meandering through the corners of Caquetá until anchoring his heart in Paujil 25 years ago. In this land, the cocoa crops were already weaving ancient tales. With an untamed vision and passion, Rafael has risen as the fervent protector of the lush forest and its vibrant fauna, guarding the pulse of nature.
