The first coffee plantation was established in 1968 with Typica and Bourbón varieties. In those days, we were able still to see spider monkeys. The original owners were Arturo Lievano and his wife, her daughter Nora Svetlana Lievano got married to Victor Hugo Melchor and together began to diversify the varieties by introducing caturra and catimor coffees.
It represents a great source of satisfaction. It is very good for us to have a scenario to showcase our quality and all of our effort. This kind of events moves us to work in our production towards quality and quantity. Our desire is to have good selling prices so we can invest in our fincas.
