Introducing Villa Pastora, a coffee gem nestled in the picturesque Palestina municipality of Huila, Colombia. Led by the passionate coffee grower, Álvaro Arley Mora Anacona, this enchanting 8-hectare farm has been cultivating coffee for over 30 years.
At an elevation of 1,680 meters above sea level, Villa Pastora boasts an ideal environment for growing exquisite coffee. With 20,000 plants of Caturro, Tabí, and Bourbon Rosado varieties, the harvest season from October to December brings forth exceptional cherries.
