Veronica’s grandfather, Milton Gaviria, was behind the creation of the farm, having started out as a coffee farmer in the family for many years. The farms are located in the municipality of Armenia, in the department of Quindio, at an altitude of 1 400 m above sea level in the lower part of the central mountains and are bordered by the ecological corridor of the Quindio River, which, together with the perfect conditions, gives our coffee a unique taste and aroma at a high level of coffee selection.

The coffee grown on our coffee farms is carefully processed by local workers and farmers who come from our town, ensuring good quality coffee and traceability. Our family, with its 50 years of coffee growing tradition and its social commitment, contributes to the development of the region.
Coffee is processed on the farm in all three ways. Washed, semi-washed and dry methods. However, in order to achieve complex flavors, the Gavíri family is increasingly processing the beans dry, i.e. in the natural way.
Pink Bourbon is a hybrid between Red and Yellow Bourbon and is known for its pink color. To preserve the pink fruit, farmers should isolate the trees from others. This lot of Bourbon has been processed in the classic dry/natural way. Ripe cherries are harvested one at a time and after further sorting are left to ferment in a closed environment, preferably in a grain pro bag, for at least 24 hours. The coffee is then gradually dried on African beds and dried in kilns. Thanks to the natural processing, the coffee has a full body and sweet fruity notes.
