Finca El Colibri is a few miles from the small village of Totoro in the Southern Estate of Cauca. Volcanic Soils and glacier water is the norm in this part of the world. This beautiful land almost touches the borders of National Park of Purace. Don Emiro Carrillo first acquired the 10-hectare plot of land back in the late 1980’s. Since then he has dedicated his life to improving the quality of the coffee and the post harvest procedures. Together with his son Eulices the farm has grown to 14 hectares full of an impressive array of both young and old varietals. Emilio and Eulices - two generations of coffee farmers but just one common goal. Outstanding Coffee.
