Our Name

In the 17th Century there lived a legendary Indian chief named Karlacá who fought the Spanish conquistadores in Colombia.  Ever since Karlacá's time, the people have believed that in the depth of the an ancient mountain called "Penas Blancas," lies the fabled treasure of Karlacá.

From this storied mountain of Colombia comes the most delicious coffee, alone among coffees, considered the best-kept secret of the people.  This is the treasure of Karlacá.
