Jaime Figueroa was born in the municipality of Garzón into a family of five siblings who, with the unconditional support of his mother who was a dressmaker, managed to study and progress.
Jaime spent all his summer holidays in the countryside with his grandmother Encarnación who lived on a small farm with a few coffee trees and cows. During the summer months and school holidays, they shared an unforgettable country life, and she passed on to Jaime what is now his great passion: coffee growing.
A few years later, Jaime Figueroa graduated with a degree in agricultural engineering and began to dedicate himself entirely to coffee growing.
Jaime joined the National Federation of Coffee Growers as a coffee grower in the coffee growing region of Huila and later joined the Cooperative sector in Coocentral until 2006.
