The coffee plantation is located in the mountainous part of Concepción Las Minas. A transnational mining corporation mined this area from 1967 until 1973. The father of the current owner, Rene, had to face this transnational corporation that did not allow him to continue working the land because of their mining interests. His father was willing to give his life to defend his land but still the transnational corporation did not pay him even a penny and  basically looted all the valuable minerals and destroyed the land. Since 1973, the land began to recover and in 1983 we began to establish a small coffee plantation of caturra plants.Currently, Rene has come to establish 15.00 hectares of coffee, caturra, actuai and a small percentage of this year will be Maragogype,harvested separately.
