Gillio Francesa was a coffee producer who grew coffee on his farm for most of his adult life. He lived in a humble house right next to the property where his coffee grew (hence the farm name “La Casa”). Sadly, Gillio passed away from old age in 2019. We worked with Gillio from 2010 until his death and, even as he aged, he was willing to evolve and adopt new techniques. As a result, his coffee always changed for the better. We will surely miss Gillio’s sense of humour and hunger for eclectic life experiences. His coffee now lives on, managed by his daughter Yanina. In honour of his legacy, we’re still calling this coffee in Gillio’s name.
