He and his partners crank up their machines and begin producing and packaging tropical beverages, from passion fruit to pineapple. It's a far cry from the job Mr. Macia used to have. He spent 13 years in Colombia's jungles and slums fighting as a comandante with the country's largest leftist guerrilla group. Often wielding an AK-47 assault rifle, he helped coordinate supply and recruitment for the leftist Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, or FARC.
