from those coffee people:

Elkin Arcila, who owns Puerto Arturo farm, has always been an innovator, with a mentality of achieving different results with common things. As the first generation of coffee growers in his family, Elkin went to break the mold of traditional coffee to research specialty coffee, its quality processes, and agronomy needs. This hunger for knowing took Elkin to different kinds of training practices like barista, which is his added value for his competitors. That is to say, Elkin, knowing so much about this subject, has been able to participate as a facilitator of training in his town on barista techniques, which has allowed his different coffees to achieve greater visibility in the market. In 2017, Elkin decided to open his own barista school, in the municipality of Támesis. Together with his son as the first student, he opened this formative space, where he trains approximately 15 to 20 young professionals each year. In his coffee-growing community, he is recognized and praised as an entrepreneur, and visionary with a high social awareness. He shares his knowledge of honey specialty coffee and contributes to the economic growth and favorable conditions of employment for many producers in this sector.
