El Llano is part of the farm called Llano Bonito, which includes the following plots: El Llano, La Ladera, and Bellavista. In 2008, El Llano won the third place in Cup of Excellence competition and Bellavista the first place in 2009. El Llano is located between 1750 and 2000 m.a.s.l. This estate has belonged to our family for many years; at the beginning, my grandfather was the owner. Nowadays, we are the third generation and we want to preserve it for next generations. Specifically, this farm was inherited from my grandfather, whom we used to call MAYO, and in his memory the mill is called DON MAYO. In this farm lived my grandfather, father and uncles. Besides the coffee plantation, in this land we used to produce corn, beans, sugar cane, avocados, bananas, vegetables and fruits and raised cattle and chickens. The real value of this land is not in the economical but the mixture of values, feelings and memories of all the things shared in the family. It is like a fantasy movie based on real life that I enjoy and share with all the customers/visitors that we gladly receive.
This year’s lot is a Geisha that we decided to process as a honey coffee.
