CEO & Founder of Heirloma - Hustino Mitchell
Mitchell has founded Heirloma de Cana which produces sugar….but not just any sugar. Like a fine wine or third-wave coffee, the terroir, heirloom varietals, and traditional farming methods give the cane sugar complex flavor notes, ranging from apricot to dried cherry, to prune, to caramel, to chocolate.
Heirloma is an agricultural exporter that partners with indigenous Colombian tribes to grow naturally derived products such as handcrafted cane sugar, green coffee, raw cacao, chocolate, and honey, made available to a global market through direct wholesale and domestic distributors. All of their 100% organic agricultural products are grown and made in accordance with indigenous traditions in the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta mountains, UNESCO’s World Biosphere Reserve named as the most at risk of desertification due to global climate change.
