EL PRÍSTINO® Has chosen an enchanted land located on the mountains of the center of Colombia, the coffee-growing region.
The farm is known as TIERRA GRATA, located between Risaralda and Caldas, at an altitude between 1,400 and 1,650 meters above sea level; it has more than 15 natural water springs, which continually moisten the soil, along with a forest of guaiacum, walnut, and guadua bamboo trees. They protect and attract a great diversity of fauna, that jointly work with the full heartedness of more than 200 members of this family, making this a special place.
All our processes are headed by experts, that provide life to this wonderful coffee. A plantation under shadow, carefully and manually treated. The coffee beans are harvested and selected one by one, washed, threshed, and roasted to obtain a cup of specialty coffee and quality for those who look for a great beverage.
That is how EL PRÍSTINO® safeguards its greater privilege between cups of coffee and always striving for the best!
Being central to our purpose is taking care of our people, and so EL PRÍSTINO® executes continuous plans to improve their wellbeing, with actions that impact their living environment and with wages that exceed above 70% rewarding the careful selection and harvesting of this great coffee.

Grains thereafter are carefully washed and dried with a special process that highlights EL PRÍSTINO® 's characteristic sweet and chocolate notes.
