We are a family originally from Colombia, who moved to Canada in 1992, looking for new experiences and new life for Vicky my wife, for our 2 daughters, Andrea and Laura and for myself.
After spending most of my life working in the IT hi-tech industry for North American companies of all sizes, in the business development side of it, at the beginning of 2012 I decided it was about time for me to move away from the dry, stressful and sometimes meaningless highly competitive corporate environment; that it was about time for me to do something different, more rewarding and fulfilling with my life.
I wanted something closer to my heart, to my passion of helping others, something in which I could give back not only to the local community here where I live in, but also to help and support some vulnerable communities back in my home country, which are in deep need.
My initial contact with coffee farms was in 1989 through a small cafetal -coffee plantation- my father in law had at that time in Guaduas, a small town in Cundinamarca, Colombia, on which he worked endless hard journeys, in order to have a sustainable and profitable cafetal. It was an amazing & learning experience that introduced me to the world of coffee and tought me the initial concepts about running a cafetal.
After talking to some cafeteros -coffee farmers- back in Colombia, and learning about the difficult times they face on a daily basis to run their farms in a sustainable way, to support their families, and to live with dignity and honesty, I realized I could do something to really help them in improving their living conditions in a sustainable and continuous way.
Through the research process about Colombian coffee, I realized that Colombia has so many different coffee regions -82 ecotopes with varied soils characteristics, altitudes, vegetation and climates- that produce so many unique coffee varieties, which would easily and fully satisfy the most demanding palate of any coffee lover and coffee connoisseur.
