Campesino’s main warehouse is located in Jerico, Antioquia.  Jerico is a small and very Catholic town, home to Colombia’s only canonized saint, Madre Laura (Mother Laura). 

The town maintains a rich coffee culture, but has limited access to resources.  Campesino set-up a coffee shop in Jerico in 2016, providing a new option for the farmers to sell their coffee at a higher price and also forming a personal relationship with them. Helping them to improve quality by doing frequent farm visits, cupping analysis, and micro-loans for infrastructure projects.
