Four generations have been focused on offering exceptional coffees. These families based in Quindío and Valle del Cauca regions, Montenegro and Sevilla to be more precised. Then they expanded to Caicedonia municipality looking for a location in order to produce high quality coffees and this is when La Gaviota farm is acquired.
The first generations focused their efforts on high productivity and clean cup, then new ways of entering the specialty market were born through labels such as Rainforest. The third generation started to look for quality over quantity seeking other markets for the coffees produced at the farm. During this process, the Manantiales del Frontino is acquired where different varietals started to be grown.
Thanks to the good results out of these profiles, this model started to be replicated through a team of professionals and this is what today Manantiales del Frontino stands for now a days.
This farm has placed 1st and 3rd in Cup of Excellence 2018 with a Gesha and Gesha-Bourbon lots, being this an example of consistency with their work.
