Elías Roa is a longtime coffee producer, originally from Acevedo, Huila. He still maintains a few coffee farms there but Tamaná in El Pital has become his crown jewel. It's there he has honed his craft with more precise processing and better drying. Furthermore, he now cultivates a wide range of coffee trees including some older stock heirlooms and even some African varieties.
His immediate family are mostly involved in coffee in some way. Bellanid, his wife, is the greatest of hostesses. His daughter, Derlin, and son-in-law, Diego Campos (former barista champion of Colombia) help manage the farm as well as their own plot in La Plata.
