The story of the farm unfortunately starts with a victim of the recent coffee price crisis. A very large farm by Colombian standards, the 52-hectare farm was sold in 2018 after being neglected in the crisis to the family run operation, Café Lumbus. Only 10 percent of the lots were in production, but Catalina and an eager manager, Juan Felipe, saw the potential of these high altitudes and fertile lands.
The family-run Café Lumbus manages their own farms and helps surrounding smallholder farmers improve the quality of their coffee and access fair and equitable prices in the global coffee markets.
