A hug and a cup of coffee to start your day

A unique and unrepeatable coffee by Luis Antonio Contreras

We tell you the story behind the producer's recognition and tribute.

Every morning I look forward to doing a great job dedicating myself to the projects I have to accomplish. New knowledge and experiences result in a quality of life as a coffee grower, and for all this to be possible I count on a pillar that inspires me to grow, my son. Every morning we start the day with a fraternal hug and a delicious cup of coffee from our farm, both things fill me with joy, one every time I see it running through our house full of life and health, the other, imagining homes with the happiness with which our home is fed. This coffee bears his name because we hope, his mother and I, that he will be a great professional and that in the future he will proudly say “the best coffee is grown on our farm”.
