Néstor Neffer Lasso Zúñiga
José Uribe Lasso was born in the department of Nariño, located in western Colombia, bordering Ecuador and the Pacific Ocean. He has been working with coffee since he was 13 years old and has always believed in the great potential of the international market. His wife, Marta Zuñiga, is also a native of the department of Nariño. They decided to move to the department of Huila looking for a better future and new opportunities.
José began collecting coffee in other departments and returned to his home at harvest time with the idea of having his own coffee lot. Over time, he and his brothers started planting 2,000 sticks. He collected coffee from Monday to Friday and on Saturdays and Sundays he worked on his own lot.
"La Mayor" (as he affectionately calls his wife) and José bought the El Diviso farm from a neighbor "Don Jeremías". José and Marta had 3 children, who today are in charge of the production and maintenance of the farm, the family is a producer of high specialty coffees. Jose always taught his children from a very young age to farm work such as collecting, planting and harvesting. They have given the family business an additional focus on marketing.
