During our visit to SENA, Steve Moloney (left) of The Barista League got to talk with Omar Valero, a recent graduate of the school's coffee program. Omar explained that he currently works as a barista in nearby Pitalito, but after completing the SENA course, has decided he wants to start his own farm. He looks forward to the hands-on work he'll do with coffee agronomy during his internship, which he will begin in January. After a long ride in the chiva, attendees were treated to a pop-up brew bar at 1,600 masl, atop Finca Monteblanco.
