Drive up bumpy unpaved dirt roads straight into the Colombian clouds at 5,740 feet above sea level, and you arrive at El Manzano Farm, the birth place of Quanta Coffee. Our founder, Mateo Hoyos Bedoya learned everything there is to know about coffee from the owner of El Manzano who just happens to be his uncle, Oscar Hoyos producer of specialty coffee since 1982. The Hoyos family took over El Manzano in the 1970s and they have continued to expand operations since. El Manzano has over 125,000 trees and employs 50 people year round, making it extremely important to the local population.
