Braulio Luque lives with his wife Aida Titirico and three children in Cima del Jaguar, a group of farms in the Kantutani area, over 5,000 feet above sea level, that is named for the wild Bolivian jaguars who also live there. Braulio, Aida, and Braulio's brother Eulogio all grow coffee, and all placed in the Bolivia Cup of Excellence competitions until the last Bolivia COE in 2009. They all work together, but they keep their production separate. Invalsa is currently working with Braulio's brother in law, Juan Jose Machicado to construct a mechanized wet mill in Kantutani to increase the efficiency and quality of Kantutani's production. We are proud to have been working with the producers of Cima del Jaguar for over eight years now.
Besides being an accomplished coffee grower, Braulio is an avid hunter (deer, agouti, wild hens) having served as a sharp shooter in the Bolivian army during his youth, in the mandatory military service for all Bolivians. He also drives machinery and heavy duty trucks for the Bolivian Road Authority during the off season. He is an accomplished coffee grower, having obtained the top three spots during the last three Bolivia Cup of Excellence competitions.
