Coffee with an impish sweetness

A unique and unrepeatable coffee by José Heider Contreras

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

My second daughter, the inspiration that never ceases, with her smile helps me to get up every day and walk listening to her smile. She is always laughing and makes me walk around the farm and do my best as my parents taught me, “to be a person who fights for her dreams and those of her family”. Maria Victoria has that “mischievous sweetness” that inspires me and drinking coffee always connects me with her. I dedicate this lot to her for her joy in helping me to improve myself and work giving the best of me and doing so by being an example to follow, fighting to offer the best product: “An excellent cup of hot coffee!
