Finca Villa Lara

In 2010, Jonathan Lara Parke and Beatriz Gomez Cala settled at Villa Lara with the intention of starting a small recreational farm. All that changed during a chance encounter with an agronomist from the National Federation of Coffee Growers (FNC), who steered the couple towards an incentive program to revitalize Colombia’s coffee industry.

Villa Lara is located in the Colombian department of Cundinamarca, at 1650masl. The coffee population on the farm grew to over 45,000 trees on eight of the 23 hectares that Villa Lara encompasses. Jonathan and Beatriz specialize in producing micro lots of high-quality coffee. Additionally, the couple focuses on farming practices that embrace all aspects of sustainability, including: land conservation; wildlife protection; and worker empowerment.

 Castillo And Tabi Green Coffee

Colombia is one of the few coffee origins that almost exclusively grows Arabica coffee. That’s because the high altitudes of the Andes mountains are so well-suited to quality Arabica cultivation. The Castillo and Tabi varieties were both developed by Cenicafe, Colombia’s premier coffee research center, as rust-resistant strains. Tabi is a cross between Typica, Bourbon, and Timor hybrid, while Castillo is derived from a cross between the Caturra and Timor hybrid varieties.
