Expelled by violence and the guerrillas from his home region in southern Colombia and after 20 hard years as a harvester, Cesar's father was finally able to fulfil his dream and acquire a small coffee plantation in the Quindio region. Today, his son, the young coffee farmer Cesar Huesaquillo, produces an excellent specialty coffee on the just 12 hectare farm under the guidelines of sustainable and chemical-free cultivation.

FINCA ESMERALDA

What is a Finca ?

A Finca refers to a piece of cultivated land where a habitable dwelling is also located. Fincas usually produce some food, planting and are also dedicated to raising domestic animals or livestock. The term Finca has gained popularity and lately it is also used to refer to homes in rural locations. A Finca will be translated into FarmHouse but with the difference that a Finca will be given this name because of its tradition during many years.

What is a Finca ?

Fincas have been part of Spanish culture for centuries and the term traditionally refers to a rural or agricultural estate. 
For coffee farmers in Colombia and Central & South America, a Finca is the place where they cultivate the coffee.
Our coffees are all "Single Estate Coffees". That's the name for coffees whose origin can be traced back to the Finca.
