Home is where the heart is for Omar Banda. Born and raised in Peru, he left his hometown, studied agronomy and returned to invest in his beloved El Lirio. Establishing his farm as a showcase, Omar shared his knowledge, helped improve quality and productivity, and built partnerships and trust with a community of local smallholder farmers—cultivating respect in the Peruvian specialty coffee market. Harvested in high altitude with an abundance of flora, these beans can take days to transport from this remote place. El lirio means “lily” in Spanish, and this exquisite, aromatic coffee is an ode to beauty and returning home.
