Our history dates back to 1707, when Don Andrea Bottero Bernardi became the first member of the Bottero family to move to Antioquia, known now as Colombia.
Centuries later, in 1892, Don José Jaramillo Vallejo inherited land in the newly discovered Eden Valleys in El Quindio, Colombia where he developed the first ever-coffee plantation in the region, known as “El Arco”.
From 1960 through the 1990s, engineer Dr. Raul Botero Macia, from the 12th generation of Botero’s to settle in Colombia, expanded and industrialized “El Arco.” Here, he developed the “Armenia Supremo,” a soft, aromatic, and flavorful style of coffee; making it one of the most sought after coffees in the world.
Ten decades later, Café Doña Botero was founded by Architect Jose Guillermo Botero Jaramillo, from the thirteenth generation of Boteros. For him, Colombia represents love for the land, heritage, tradition and passion.
Our coffee is monocropped and hand picked all year round. The result is a coffee of superior quality, which is obtained by a process of careful workmanship. Our coffee grows in the plantations of the farm “El Arco” at an altitude between 1,330 meters and 1,650 meters.
Café Dona Botero’s plantations are located in the heart of the region “Eje Cafetero” in Armenia, Colombia, famous for its coffee plantations.
