This coffee was grown by Luz Helena Salazar at the farm La Leona in the rolling foothills of the Andes in Quindio, Colombia. Luz Helena has been growing coffee for over 30 years, and is a lifelong advocate for Colombian grown coffee. She is recognised as an extremely talented

farmer and as a strong, resourceful leader. She has a particular talent for managing people, and a wealth of agricultural knowledge. Luz’s passion for coffee was inspired by her husband’s work on coffee farms and as a dry mill manager. Luz would hear Jairo talking about coffee and wanted to be more involved in the industry. With the support of Jairo, Luz started learning how to care for coffee plants and what steps she needed to take to produce high-quality, ripe cherries. Luz found dealing with insects very challenging at the start and would draw on Jairo’s knowledge to help with this. For several years now, her focus has been on producing Specialty Coffee. Luz has been able to improve farm practices and focus on producing the best cherries she can. Once ripe, the cherries are then processed at our processing station, La Pradera.
