farm story
El Mirador

Weimar Lasso was born in a coffee-growing family in San Adolfo. At a young age, he left the city to become a veterinarian and work on some of the best horse breeding farms in Colombia.

Years later, he decided to visit his hometown of San Adolfo and discovered that his family was experiencing financial difficulty, which influenced his decision to move back to San Adolfo and help the family's coffee business.

mutated variety
Chiroso

Chiroso is a variety of Bourbon originating in Urrao that is rarely seen outside the region. The variety is characterised by an elongated cherry and is known locally for its productivity.

The Chiroso variety is locally called Caturra Chiroso, the shorter version, and Borbon Chiroso, the taller type of tree. The Caturra Chiroso has been very common in Urrao for the past 30 years, grown primarily for its good productivity. Bourbon Chiroso has only recently been distinguished as its own variety. Although Caturra Chiroso has been produced for several years, its amazing quality was only discovered in 2012 and again in 2014 after great results in both Cup of Excellence Competitions. However, things may be changing, after the year’s competition (2020) the Bourbon Chiroso variety beat all expectations, achieving the first place prize.
