History of the Farm:
It is a property of fifty-six hectares of extension that were reforested in the year 2000 with coniferous forest. Of the total extension twenty hectares were planted with coffee (This area is composed of four lots of five hectares each). The planted forest was used as shade for coffee, and this is its fourth year of production. The plantation was established with the mindset of producing a coffee that could win the first place in the Cup of Excellence. For this reason, a genetically improved Pacamara variety was selected to start this farm, and only the plants that showed dominance of Maragogype were planted.
