Colombia Tolima Finca La Planada Yellow Caturra Grainpro coffee is sourced from Finca La Planada a single estate owned by Luis Eduardo Cuartas and his family. La Planada is located in the municipality of Rio Blanco within the department of Tolima, Colombia. Luis and his wife Ludivia inherited a small piece of land and over time they have increased the farm’s size to 17 acres. Luis and his family process their coffee at their own micro-wet mill and then dry their own coffee, typically on elevated tables inside solar dryers that provide protection from the rain. Luis collaborates with an exporting company called Lohas Beans to gain access to the international market. The goal of the partnership between Luis and Lohas Beans is to focus on quality and increase earnings from the sale of the coffee as a way to improve his family’s livelihood.
