About

Mario Alarcon

Description

Translate
My name is Mario Ricardo Alarcón Melendez and I'm the 5th generation to oversee our family's farms, Finca El Recuerdo and Finca Monte de Oro. Due to my major (Mechanical Industrial Engineer), I took the duty to design a wet mill that would improve the coffee quality.

Using the best machinery and with a simple and efficient process. Currently, the farm has more than 5 varietals of coffee and 3 different processes, having a wide variety of flavour for our worldwide clients. I took over the farms after my mother Ericka Melendez, who began managing the plantations in 1980 after my grandfather's passing. It's important to denote that she was the first lady in the area who administrated coffee farms with great success.
