About the farm

Spanning between the Andes Mountains and the Nevado del Hula volcano, is the vereda El Divino Niño in Suaza. This vereda should probably be called "Los Cantillo" instead, because it is the home to the entire Cantillo Family. Isaias Cantillo, Jose Manuel's father, used to work as a coffee picker. He moved from farm to farm, migrating from mountain to mountain through the departments of Huila, Tolima, and Risaralda. When he met Nidia, his wife, he decided it was time for him to settle down. He found and purchased a piece of land in Suaza, which he named it “La Esperanza”. Jose Manuel was born and raised surrounded by coffee trees. From his young age, he already knew that he wanted to continue with his father's legacy. In 2003, he decided to produce coffee on the land that his father gave him.

This piece of land has slowly grown into his own farm, the same for each one of Jose Manuel's brothers. They are a perfect example of a family business, helping each other out and working together towards the same objective: to produce high quality coffee.  Jose Manual is proud of his family because of their hard work in coffee, they have been able to move forward and generate employment in the region. Over the years, Jose Manuel is motivated to improve in coffee processing to achieve better quality. For him, the secret to success is to do things with love and dedication.
