Andres has worked with coffee for as long as he can remember. For 15 years, he traveled to the state of Huila to work as a cherry picker during the harvest season, eventually saving up enough money to start his own farm. He got right to work planting trees at Progreso, which also became home to him, his wife, Diana, and their two kids.
After a bad experience with the low prices of commercial coffee, Andres decided he only wanted to work with specialty coffee. He stopped focusing on quantity and shifted towards better varietals with a focus on learning and implementing techniques to produce high quality coffee. While he works just as hard to produce less coffee, he is proud of the quality and that he can sell it for a price that reflects the effort he puts into each harvest.
