La Colina - Bourbon Coffee
La Colina, translated means “The Hill”. A name that was passed down from Tony Medina's father who decided to give the farm it's name because of the elevations of the land, and the hill on which it is located. Tony inherited the plot from his dad, who distributed his farm as smaller plots among his children. Initially, Tony planted only basic grains like corn and beans, but was always his dream to have a coffee farm. In these early days Tony would work on neighboring coffee farms to learn and gain experience. 1991 was the first year he planted coffee. Slowly but steady, Tony increased the number of trees and the production. After 25 years, Tony concludes that his dream has come true. It taught him that perseverance has pays off.
