V Version of Coffee Entrepreneur

Coffee growers from the department of Huila gathered in the V Version of Coffee Entrepreneur (Empresario Cafetero) which took place in the municipality of Pitalito. The free entry event was leaded by the Colombian Coffee Growers Federation´s (FNC) Departmental Coffee Growers Committee of Huila, Cadefihuila, the Sena, the Mayoralty of Pitalito and Centro Comercial Gran Plaza San Antonio. A nourishing academic agenda, the 2nd version of the Barista Championship, the 1st Cupping Championship, and the micro-lots competition were among the activities developed during the event.
