This farm is a family legacy, which has been batter by a harsh climate of strong winds and low temperatures, however it been a great cradle for the development of some great coffee.
Nowadays its owners Mrs. Ileana Rojas and Mr. Felipe Rodríguez Rojas, supervise the farm Doña Ileana. Their main goal is to grow certified organic high altitude coffee with an excellent quality. They receive a lot of help from their kids: Daniela, Issac, Josue, Sebastian and Sofia.
