Patio Bonito is a hardworking, family-run farm in Caldono, Cauca. The farm is 5 hectares, with 4 hectares growing 22,000 coffee trees of a few different varieties, namely Castillo, Colombia, and Pink Bourbon. The farm's mission is "to provide alternatives and training to farmers and students on the management, conservation, and exploration of natural resources and the environment," and the famiy's philosophy is, “The best legacy we can leave to our children is: love, knowledge, and a planet in which to live." Coffees at Patio Bonito are picked ripe (scarlet red cherries for the Colombia, deep purple for the Castillo, and pink for the Pink Bourbon), then put into the hopper of a depulper overnight; they are depulped the next day, then sorted using a zaranda before being fermented dry for 22 hours. The coffee is washed three times, then put in parabolic dryers for 12–14 days
