Story: Finca Palmichal is located high on the western side of the Central Andes mountain range. Atilano Giraldo is the third generation of his family to grow coffee in Quindio. He grew up working in coffee alongside his father. Gradually, he acquired properties including Finca Palmichal - a 53 hectares with approximately 350,000 coffee trees.
Impact: The mill used by Atilano Giraldo reprocesses the pulp to later use as organic fertilizer. The water from processing is recycled in drainage tanks before being returned to the natural water ways. Don Atilano has also implemented special programs for women on the farm.
