The Experiment begun to plant coffee trees at 2,000 meters above sea level. With challenges, unfavorable conditions in the soil and the adverse microclimate for harvesting.
For this, the soil was improved. The native trees of the region were left and suitable shade trees were planted for this crop such as Chalum and Gravileas. High quality plants were selected in order to obtain the best organoleptic characteristics and thus be able to enter the competitive and demanding world of the best coffees. In accordance with current ecological trends and at the same time contributing to the reforestation that is so necessary for the region.
Another important element in the development of the farm has been the creation of sources of rainwater capture (capture tanks) and artisanal wells to store enough water for drip irrigation during the summer season which is normally over a 6 month period.
Los Aguacatones farm is focused on producing high specialty coffees using different processes such as: washed, honeys and naturals. In order to satisfy the most demanding palates in the specialty coffee industry.
In the year 2017 the farm participated in the Cup of Excellence Program, reaching National Winner. We achieved the 8th place in the Cup of Excellence 2018, 13th place in cup of excellence 2019.
We implemented new drying techniques in bunk beds with shadows of zaran, taking up to 15 days to slowly dry the parchment, as well as new varieties like Geisha and Pacamara for future years.
