More About
El Deseo

The El Deseo Farm consists of eight hectares of Castillo, Caturrón, and Pink Bourbon. Luz’s dream has always been to grow exceptional coffee. Her hard work has resulted in an incredibly clean and juicy cup, showcasing the best of Colombia.

Huila is the largest coffee-producing region of Colombia. It sits in the southwest of the country with the third-highest peak – the Nevado del Huila volcano.

Over the last 10 years, Huila has put itself on the country’s coffee map – taking Antioquia’s place as the nation’s best coffee producer. Coffee harvesting can occur almost all year round due to the warm climate, rich volcanic soil, and ideal altitude allowing for generous volumes of coffee. Pitalito is a municipality located 188km from Huila’s capital – Neiva.

Pitalito is famous for producing award-winning Cup of Excellence lots.
