The coffee story
The cherries were manually picked on the slopes of the farm and taken to a water tank were the unripe cherries were removed. The cherries were then fermented inside a closed tank for 24 hours, followed by depulping and sun-drying on African beds for 18 days.
El lote de café fue recogido en el mes de Diciembre de 2020, durante la cosecha tuvimos algunas dificultades debido a que la situación presentada por la pandemia limitó el ingreso de los recolectores que vienen de otras zonas del país. No obstante, como finca logramos obtener la certificación como "Negocios verdes" la cual es emitida por la corporación ambiental de nuestra región.
Nuestro café Honey se caracteriza por tener notas cítricas, fragancias de panela, chocolate, miel y vainilla, cuenta con una acidez cítrica media alta y cuerpo medio. Sabemos que nuestro café será seleccionado por los tostadores por las características adquiridas al ser cultivos bajo sombra, el cuidadoso proceso de recolección y un dedicado procesamiento que brinda una excelente taza.

Finca Las Margaritas is a family farm managed by myself and my wife Lina. We are helped by overseer Andrés and his wife Pilar. Lina and I are both engineers and live in Bucaramanga, but having a farm and returning to the countryside was a dream of ours. We believe we can offer a better future for our daughters Laura and Luisa by working with coffee. Our farm is located in the mountains of Confines, Santander, between 1750m and 1900m above sea level. The climate is fresh and we have many trees to cover our plantation. We are Rainforest Alliance certified due to our commitment to the environment and biodiversity and we have a water spring surrounded by a conservation area. This harvest is the first in which we are experimenting with processing. These are still small scale investments because of space, but we are very happy with the results so far! We haven't received many visitors yet and welcome those who want to see what we do and drink some guarapo (and coffee) with us!
