Background

 

Located in the mountainous terrain of southwest Antoquia, Finca Las Mercedes has the perfect altitude and climate for producing excellent quality coffee as well as playing host to a diversity of native flora and fauna. In this ideally situated terrain, the Guerra family have dedicated 150 of their 384 extensive hectares to coffee. The rest of the farm lies under native forest – some 234 hectares devoted entirely as nature and watershed preserve. 


In Las Mercedes Farm, the family have been cultivating coffee for four generations they have worked on a sustainable and environmentally friendly process. For the last 5 years, they have been focusing on the production of specialty coffees. 


The farm has been finalist in different coffee competitions such as Antioquia best cup coffee where they got the 8th place over 400 farms. The farm’s diligent environmental and social practices have led them to achieve Rainforest Alliance, UTZ and 4C certification.
