"A cup of coffee with love and patience offers excellence''.

Coffee Producer William Parra

A glimpse of its history and its coffee experience

I am dedicated to coffee, by family tradition, for the taste and love we have for coffee.
I have been involved in coffee farming for 18 years, but for as long as I can remember I have helped my father on his farm.
A critical point for me is the fertilization of coffee plantations due to the high cost of inputs.
For me the most important stage of the whole production process is the picking of coffee cherries.
The most satisfying point for me is when you take into account the work done, the different processes that I carry out to obtain good quality and that the investment is profitable. And of course, having a cup of coffee that I produced myself.
