Finca El Paraiso, owned by José Ignacio Gómez, is lucky enough to receive the famous Buesaco weather. Not only this, it also has amazing landscape views, which is how the farm got its name. In his efforts to protect the amazing biodiversity and climate, on Finca El Paraiso they always aim to produce coffee in an environmentally sustainable way.
After starting to produce specialty coffee José decided to found the Cooperativa de Cafés Especiales de Nariño with some other quality focused producers in the region, the idea being that the Cooperative would help its members find a market for their outstanding coffees. José’s involvement with the cooperative as well as his dedication on the farm has led him to make a success of his specialty coffee venture. He understands that producing great quality coffee is only the first step and finding the right buyer is just as important.
