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!
