|Castillo and F8
Introducing Luis Alberto Núñez Beltrán, a coffee producer from the enchanting Bellavista farm nestled in the mountains of Magdalena, Colombia. With passion and dedication, Luis cultivates 10 hectares of rich Castillo and F8 coffee plants, yielding 50,000 trees. At an elevation of 1,616 meters, his beans are bathed in the perfect altitude and climate, resulting in exceptional quality.
For five years, Luis has poured his heart into Bellavista, cherishing it as his heritage and livelihood. His wife, Erika, and their children, Jimena and Mónica, join him in this labor of love. Together, they maintain a sustainable approach, hand-clearing weeds and avoiding chemicals whenever possible.
The harvest months of October through March are bustling with activity, employing a team of skilled workers. After picking the cherries, the family diligently records the day's yield, ensuring quality and attention to detail at every step. From there, the beans are carefully sun-dried under a canopy, preserving their distinct flavors.
Luis takes pride in his coffee, which stands apart due to meticulous care and nutrient-rich soils. While his coffee supports their livelihood, it also allows them to contribute to the community by assisting in road repairs and aiding the sick when needed.
Through their partnership with Delagua, Luis envisions a bright future. Long-term commercial relationships hold the promise of better prices and improved projects, securing their success in the coffee market.
Join Luis and his family on their journey as they create extraordinary coffee, cultivate their dreams, and make a positive impact on their community.
