About this coffee :

Located in the temperate climate and 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. 

n the first few years alone, Don Alfonso planted 150,000 coffee trees on the farm, and since this time, the principle economic focus of the Guerra family has turned to coffee farming. Don Alfonso’s son, Juan Carlos Guerra, will be the third generation in his family to farm coffee and is now actively involved in the activities of the farm.

Under his influence, the farm has increasingly focused on quality improvements and speciality coffee production. The farm’s Caturra (70%), Castillo (20%) and Colombia (10%) trees are painstakingly maintained and with an eye to marrying productivity and environmental stewardship. Plots are fertilised twice annually and all control of pests and illnesses are done using products that are certified as being friendly to wildlife.

Grown on quite a high altitude, this coffee has a deep syrupy sweetness and mouthfeel. With baked apple, hazelnut praline and malt sugar candy, you know it makes a super duper sweet flat white & long black. Brew with French Press in the morning and it will put a smile on your face.
