Atilano Giraldo’s Finca Palmichal is located within the district of Genova, Department of Quindío at an altitude of on average 1,560 meters. It's nested amongst the highest mountains in the Andes, the Cordillera Central. Refreshing yet calm winds descend through green valleys, whilst volcano cones rise impressively in the surrounding hills. This area, as part of the Eje Cafetero (coffee axis), has become famous for its long tradition in coffee cultivation.
Altilano farms a total of 53 ha of coffee trees. His farm curls along lush hills next to yucca and green plantain trees. Having worked alongside his father for years, Atilano is now the third generation to cultivate coffee in this area. Over the years he has perfected the processes and his knowledge about coffee to create an Arabica full of abundant aromas and body.
