Nestled in the San Carlos area of Urrao, La Soledad was part of the Uriel’s parent’s farm before they split it between their sons. With his land, Uriel has 2,500 Colombia trees – 1,000 Bourbon and 1,500 Chiroso. He expects to plant more trees in the future as well.

At 58, Uriel has spent over twenty years in the coffee business. While he has no intention of retiring soon, he does hope that his children, France and Carlos, will continue the family farm one day. With that in mind, he wants to position them for success. He sees the specialty coffee market as the best option for the future and wants to establish relationships that will continue for many years to come.
