Coffee Producer Jaime Figueroa

A glimpse of its history and its coffee experience

When I was a child I spent summers in the countryside with my grandmother, those summers awakened in me a great passion for the countryside.
After my university training as an agronomist, I began my career as a coffee grower and member of the cooperative more than thirty years ago.
A critical point for me is the drastic climate changes that we cannot control with both very dry and very wet seasons.
All the stages are important for the production process of my coffees, especially the drying of the coffee in the sun on an African bed since there is no control of conditions.
Achieving good results, both in the production of excellent quality coffees and in economic results, is the most satisfying part of my job.

Jaime Figueroa's Farm

Lucitania coffee farm

Thanks to the visionary entrepreneurs of the time, the Department of Huila began to gain strength and stand out for its production.
Finca Lucitania was acquired by Jaime Figueroa thirty years ago with the objective of growing an efficient and productive coffee crop, one of the best in the Huila region.
Over time, Jaime’s passion for the countryside and his university education turned him into a coffee grower at Finca Lucitania, where high quality coffees are produced.
