It belonged to Gustavo Taborda, Adolfo’s father during a period of 20 years from 1993 to 2013. Gustavo Taborda then sold the farm to his son Adolfo Taborda in 2013. Who moved from Amagá, a village closed by where he had another coffee farm to he village of Loma del Guamo in Titiribí town in Antioquia.

Honey Process is a coffee processing method where the coffee skin is removed but then rather than removing the mucilage (pulp) as well, it stays intact during the drying process. The mucilage is sticky, sweet and has a golden color like honey, which is where the name comes from. This process brings out the sweetness of the coffee bean.
