Producer Andrés Salaverria
“Passion for coffee”.
Since I was a child, I have had a passion for coffee growing.
I like challenges and coffee growing presents strong challenges, it is worthwhile to work and always try to innovate new things, I also like to work with the social and ecological components around coffee growing.
I am the fifth generation of coffee growers in my family, and I have been involved in coffee growing for eleven years.
Farms managed by father and son, Don José Antonio and Andrés Salaverria, both have always complemented each other very well in their responsibilities and work on the farms, with the clear objective of diversifying their coffees and keeping up to date with the most advanced processes occurring in other countries and carrying them out with their coffees, in addition to their own experimentations.
