Our Santoño Coffee Story
In the heart of a beautiful coffee region in Colombia, there is a treasure of flavor and aroma that has captivated the most demanding palates: Santoño Coffee. Its history is a story of coffee roasting from origin, dating back several generations when three founding grandfathers, all named Antonio but known as “the Toños”, began to expertly roast coffee on their small farms.
Over the years, our grandfathers “the Toños” passed on their knowledge and passion for origin coffee roasting to their children and grandchildren, thus creating a family tradition that has been passed down from generation to generation, as well as the sacred rituals that surround each step of coffee production: planting, harvesting, selecting, roasting, and cupping are part of their legacy and an integral part of our Santoño Coffee culture, carried out with great care and attention to ensure that each coffee bean is a masterpiece.
Honesty is a fundamental value in the Santoño Coffee family. We trade directly with our “Santoño partners” farmers and ensure they receive a fair price for their labor, and that the coffee is produced sustainably and in an environmentally friendly manner.
Each cup of Santoño Coffee is the result of a combination of knowledge, passion, and art. Origin roasting is carried out with techniques passed down from generation to generation, allowing the beans to reach a unique flavor and aroma. And of course, the coffee is 100% Colombian, with unique origins that give it a distinct and exciting personality.
But the history of Santoño Coffee is not just about its exceptional coffee. It is a story of love for the land, its people, and tradition. It is the story of a family that has dedicated their lives to perfecting their craft, protecting their community, and preserving the environment around them.
The history of Santoño Coffee inspires us to strive for excellence in everything we do, to do it with integrity, passion, and dedication, and to remember that what we do today has an impact on future generations. It is an emotional and inspirational story that reminds us that behind each cup of coffee is a story of love, passion, and a commitment to excellence.
