Finca El Retiro has been operating for over 40 years. It is currently
run by the third generation in the family, and most of the traditions and practices
have been passed down to Luis Fernando, the current manager.
The farm has been well taken care of, the plantation is properly pruned and in
constant renovation to ensure the best quality they can produce.

This is the first year we work with Finca El Retiro and are very happy with the
quality of the coffee, particularly when roasted and served as Espresso.
