Yenni’s family owned a farm that was isolated, but Yenni and her brother Diego saw the opportunity to grow coffee there. While Diego was doing his studies on Agricultural Enterprise Management, Yenni was involved in the farm experimenting and researching on processing.

Today Diego’s name is well known around the world and Cata Export wants to give Yenni a voice too, as her work has also influence the great success of Finca Paraiso.

Yenni and Diego have managed to create new innovative technologies in order to keep the consistency of their outstanding cup profiles, benefiting not only their farm but neighbor farms too, creating a great community of producers in Cauca.

Finca Paraiso grows Borbon, Laurina, Gesha and other exotic varietals but Castillo is the varietal Yenni would like us to represent from her farm, mainly to change the bad reputation of this varietal
