Arturo has worked in the coffee industry for over 20 years. He travels through the different regions in Colombia picking coffee while simultaneously learning from many different farmers. A couple of years ago, while working in the Huila region, he noticed how popular the pink bourbon varietal was becoming. He decided it was time to grow his own trees.

With seeds from a coffee plantation in Acevedo, Huila he travelled back to Nariño. Having no land of his own, he asked his father for a small lot to use and has his 250 coffee trees planted at El Mandarino. He now proudly puts his knowledge and experience to work cultivating his own coffee.
