Rafael Amaya comes from a traditional coffee family from Pitalito, Huila. He has been producing coffee for a long time. He has been involved in the picking process and also he has assisted with the coffee processing to other farms. In 2000, he was lucky enough to buy his first farm.

Rafael has been growing coffee since then, although it wasn’t until 2015 that he shifted his focus to the production of specialty coffee. So, in 2005 he started attending coffee courses on the processing of specialty, his passion for coffee, and also his aim to get better incomes make him focus to improve his knowledge and understanding in this area.
