A native of Urrao, Antioquia, Jorge was born into a coffee family. He grew up working alongside his father learning the intricacies of growing, harvesting, and processing coffee. Eventually, he started working by the day at neighboring farms as well, although his dream was to one day have his own farm.

When a farm in the nearby town of Betulia came up for sale, Jorge knew it was the one for him. Unfortunately, he did not have the funds to purchase it. Luckly, one of his uncles offered to partner with him and let Jorge pay him back over time. They bought La Falda together and Jorge got to work implementing all the skills he developed over the years.

Thirteen years later, La Falda is still home to Jorge, his wife Marisol, and their two children. They produce the Tabi, Colombia, and Castillo varietals. The ability to grow these types of coffee can be credited to the great climate at La Falda as well as the excellent care Jorge provides for his trees.
