Eulogio Luque Yana is married to Martha Escobar, and their son is named Diego (10). Eulogio has a passion for coffee; as he puts it, "coffee is in my blood." He works with his brother (Braulio) and sister in law (Aida), but they keep their coffees separate. They call their home, 5000+ feet above sea level, the "Cima del Jaguar", or Jaguar's Peak, after the wild Bolivian jaguars who also live there.

During Invalsa's first Bolivia origin/sourcing trip in September of 2011, we visited Cima del Jaguar, toured the farms, ate delicious ripe, red coffee cherries, and took plenty of pictures. We were treated to a camp-light dinner by the extended Luque family, as their homes do not yet have electricity. At night, some visitors claimed that they heard the roar of a jaguar, justifying the estate's name.
