Story: Campesino's main warehouse is located in Jerico, Antioquia.  Jerico is a small and very Catholic town, home to Colombia's only cannonized saint, Madre Laura (Mother Laura).  The town maintains a rich coffee culture, but has limited access to resources.  Campesino set-up shop in Jerico in 2016, providing a new option to the farmers to sell their coffee at a much higher price, in addition to forming a personal relationship with is, frequent farm visits, cupping analysis, and micro-loans for infrastructure projects.

Don Victor is one of our VIP farmers who consistently produces a clean cup and a profile that is sweet up-front with an herbal finish.  At an altitude of 2000 masl the micro-climate provides warm days and cool evenings which helps in increasing production of sugars in the coffee cherries.  Don Victor lives with his wife and two daughters.
