Jose and his wife, Claudia, are both proud and grateful for their beautiful farm, Santa Rosa. Located in the Santa Marta region and offering breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains, the farm sits 1,800 meters above sea level.

After inheriting the land from his father, Jose and Claudia started from scratch, building a small house and planting 7,000 trees of the Colombia and Castillo varietals. Over the years, as their family grew, so did Santa Rosa. They built a bigger house and, eventually, a small wet mill.

With great attention to detail from management to processing, the Villada family is a great example of what can be accomplished with limited resources. They were able to provide for their children as they grew up while simultaneously working to improve the farm. This is our first year working with them and we are super excited with the quality and consistency of their coffee.
