About the farm:

“For four generations, the skills of planting of growing, harvesting and processing coffee have been handed down to each member of the family.

The location, altitude, and soils influence the overall taste, aroma, sweetness and acidity and these characteristics are enhanced through meticulous selection and processing. For generations our attention to detail, and outmost dedication to quality is what we strive for at La Bella. 

Continuous improvement of our employees is sought through training, medical assistance, improved housing and services, to have an integrated development of social and environmental responsibility."

-Teodoro Englehart

Package: Grain Pro – a multi-layer plastic bag made to preserve freshness and aroma for longer keeping our coffees at their best.
