Proof that Carlos Imbachi is the coolest: before he was a coffee producer he was a treasure hunter! What does that even meeeean and where can we sign up?!
When Carlos started producing coffee, it really wasn’t profitable. He was able to pay his workers, but not himself. When he first came in contact with Caravela 10 years ago, the two worked together to improve the quality of Carlos’ crop. Carlos is an exceptional coffee producer. He is well known within Colombia and abroad for his coffee, and now his daughter Sonia has her own farm and is continuing her father’s legacy.
We’re excited to be able to showcase Carlos and Sonia’s coffees side by side this season.
