In the Huila highlands of Tarqui, Wilmar Guarnizo stands out among his ten siblings for transforming the La Vega farm, inherited in 2002 with no coffee trees, into a beacon of specialty coffee.

As the family's linchpin, he spearheaded the adoption of advanced coffee production techniques, fostering a spirit of collaboration. The Guarnizo family, including Wilmar's wife Tania and daughter, who manage cherry fermentation and drying, exemplify teamwork in their pursuit of coffee excellence.

Wilmar's leadership extends beyond farming to conserving local forests, embodying a commitment to both family and environmental stewardship. His success in specialty coffee enabled him to fulfil a promise to build a beautiful family home, marking a milestone in their shared journey.

Roaster

Marvell St Coffee Roasters

Marvell St select and roast coffees that are balanced, naturally sweet and free of defects, believing in minimal intervention, both on the farm level, and when roasting the raw green product. This philosophy leads them to buy the best quality coffee from Central and South America, West Africa as well as locally from Byron Bay. On a community level, they support businesses that operate with a shared intent to benefit the local community and environment.  

As a growing company they are conscious of their impact on the environment, and try to make as little impact as possible. They use a Loring Smart roaster designed to be extremely efficient and low emission. They hand deliver local orders in reuseable buckets saving about 250,000 coffee bags yearly from going into landfill. Their retail coffee bags are 100% recyclable and they make their shipping satchels from the materials their green beans are stored in.
