Background Details

Colombia Huila Tarqui Acevedo Grainpro is sourced from family-owned farms located in the municipality of Tarqui within the department of Huila, Colombia. Jose Trujillo, Wilson Fiesco, Alexis Guarnizo, Agustin Trujillo, and Luis Guarnizo collaborate with an export company called Banexport to gain access to technical support for best agricultural practices. Banexport has matched these regional producers because of their shared commitment to exquisite coffee processing and loving care for their farms, which produce complementary profiles. These producers also share a passion for environmental stewardship, which is a crucial aspect of their farm management given the close proximity of the farms to el Macizo (the geographic breakpoint where the Andes mountain range splits into three distinct ranges and forms the water source for five of the most important rivers in Colombia).
