FAMILIA GUARNIZO STORY
On the slopes of the central Cordillera of Colombia, in Huila, lies a municipality named Tarqui. This municipality is intersected by the Magdalena River and is known for its significant agricultural production. In the highlands of Tarqui, there is a group of farms owned by the Guarnizo Family, which consists of ten siblings. Among them are nine males and one female, all dedicated to coffee farming and producing exceptional high-quality coffee. The siblings share knowledge and support each other, united by the common goal of producing the finest coffee in Tarqui. Wilmar, the oldest sibling, explains, “We are ten siblings. When there is just a little coffee on the trees, at the beginning or end of the harvest, we all come together and assist each other with picking and post-harvest processes.” They even collaborate by sharing their fermentation and drying stations. The Guarnizo Family has always been an exemplary model of hard work, unity, and collaboration.
