Situated in the mild climate and mountainous terrain of southwest Antoquia, Finca Las Mercedes has the perfect climate and altitude for producing amazing quality coffee as well as providing a habitat for a diversity of native plants and animals. The Guerra family have dedicated 150 of their 384 hectares to coffee. The rest of the farm lies under native forest and is devoted entirely as a nature and watershed preserve. In the first few years, Don Alfonso planted 150,000 coffee trees on the farm. Don Alfonso’s son, Juan Carlos Guerra has since influenced the farm to increase its focus on quality improvements and speciality coffee production.
The farm’s Caturra (70%), Castillo (20%) and Colombia (10%) trees are maintained and with an eye to partner productivity and environmental stewardship. All coffee at the farm is selectively hand picked before being transported to the farm’s state-of-the-art mill to be pulped on the same day.
