Coffee producer Jaime Figueroa

"Family is the most important thing to me."

  • 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 climatic changes that we cannot control with both very dry and very wet weather.

Lhaurita Cantillo is a coffee from the Uniques range.

  • Finca Lucitania was acquired by Jaime Figueroa thirty years ago with the objective of making an efficient and productive coffee plantation among the best in the region of Huila.
