Finca La Ilusión, from Urrao, Antioquia

Finca La Ilusión is located in Urrao, Antioquia, Colombia, and managed by Luis Carlos Urrego, a 58-year-old, second-generation coffee grower. The farm consists of 2 hectares of land and sits at an elevation of 2,000 m.a.s.l, with around 3,500 coffee trees in production of the Chiroso and Caturra varieties. This lot is 100% Chiroso.

Luis Carlos processes his coffee by harvesting the ripest cherries and de-pulping them the same day. Parchment is then submerged in tiled tanks and fermented for 4 days straight, before being washed. The coffee is then placed in raised beds to dry for around 8-12 days, depending on the weather.

Coffee is his Passion!

Luis Carlos Urrego has been growing coffee all of his life. He learned the craft from his father when he was young, but decided to move closer to town 20 years ago, and sold the family farm in the process. 

However, Luis Carlos started feeling nostalgia for coffee growing, leading him 7 years ago to buy a new piece of land in Urrao, which he called Finca La Ilusión.

Ever since, he says, he has felt like a missing piece has finally been replenished, and he yearns for each crop of his Chiroso coffee. Aside from coffee, he also grows avocados and limes. 

We have been working with Luis Carlos and Finca La Ilusion since 2024, and his amazing coffees are sure to impress you for years to come.
