Renan Bajurto’s father owned land in Belen, where he had animals but no coffee. When his father saw his passion for agriculture, he decided to give it to his son. Renan lived in La Labor at the time, and focused on producing great coffee. Having been an active member of Cocafelol since 2012, his long-term investment in the farm, agriculture, and effort in production has now resulted in high quality specialty coffee.
