The town Pitalito is central to coffee trade in Southern Huila. A small town that is strategically situated on the southern end of the Magdalena river valley, seperating Colombia’s Eastern and Central mountain ranges. The area is known as the cradle of specialty coffee of Colombia, as  many small farmers started focusing on quality and good processes almost 20 years ago.  The Station structure is used to pay higher prices for quality coffee. We interviewed Deiro Garcia Botina, c0-founder of Pitalito Buying Station, he shared his main lesson from working with us:

‘I have learned to collaborate more with people, in this case with the coffee growers. Knowing their needs helps us to plan our next steps as a buying station and contribute to their work.’
