Piedra Larga Farm

Piedra Larga

“Piedra Larga” is a very special farm to us. It is the farm where it all started.

Barbosa

Barbosa, Antioquia, is a charming municipality located in the central region of Colombia. Surrounded by lush mountain landscapes, it is nestled in the majestic Colombian Andes. In addition to its natural beauty, the municipality offers a variety of outdoor activities such as hiking, horseback riding, and bird watching, allowing visitors to explore and enjoy its abundant biodiversity.

Fog + Creeks + Altitude = Specialty Coffee

Piedra Larga’s foggy mornings, creeks, and altitude result in a rich soil ideal for specialty coffee growing.

Where it all began

Piedra Larga's coffee and native trees

From Sugar Mill to Our Sweetest Specialty Coffee

The farm sits at 4,921 ft (1,500 meters) MSL. “Piedra Larga” used to be a sugar mill, and even though it had coffee trees planted around the farm, the main objective wasn’t to produce coffee.

But with land so fertile and the conditions so perfect for specialty coffee, it was almost inevitable that coffee crops would follow.

Native Trees and Fruits

And it’s not just coffee that thrives in “Piedra Larga”; many other native trees such as plantains, star fruit, and oranges flourish alongside.
