I belong to the fourth generation coffee farmers in my family after my father disease in 1995 I was fully involved in the coffee world, I worked for J. Hill & Cia and JASAL, I had the opportunity to meet the coffee from other different perspective, discovering the art and passion of cupping coffee, this amazing experience gave me the opportunity to apply my knowledge and experiences gained in the processing of my coffees.

History of the Farm:
The farm “Las Brumas” is located 45 minutes from the City of Santa Ana, with a cultivated area of 70 hectares of coffee at an altitude ranging from 1460 to 1875 msnm, and an area of 30 hectares of virgin mountain at an altitude of 1875 to 2000 msnm.
“Las Brumas” has volcanic soils, deep and very fertile which have been generated by different Ilamatepec volcano eruptions and Izalco to throughout its history, also has a micro climate very cloudy most of the year and so I decided to call it "Finca Las Brumas" this micro climate that is generated or enhanced by being located between the Santa Ana Volcano, Cerro Verde Volcano and Izalco Volcano, the micro climate reduces the amount of daylight received by the coffee tree helping the plant to have a better CREBS cycle and a slow ripening process and homogeneous that help to improve and develop their attributes in the cup, these unique conditions and special "Land, Climate and labor " generate "Terruar" characteristic of the Las Brumas Farm.
