The Guayacán farm is property of Mr. Manuel Hernández who, with the help of his wife Patricia Pereira, bought it in 1998 to convert the abandoned coffee plantation in the estate it is today. Since then, the spirit of management has been nature conservation, organic practices and respect for its collaborators. During these years, they have renovated their coffee plantations twice, where they currently have the Castillo and Colombia varietals planted, using an annual renovation system by lots, carefully making their own seedbeds.
The coffee plantations receive composts prepared in the farm, using crop waste from the same coffee and waste generated by livestock production of cows, pigs and birds, as well as from the pruning and production of shade and fruit trees that are also the habitat of many wild birds and small mammals and reptiles. This has allowed the farm to obtain the Rain Forest and AAA certification and recently the organic certification.
Guayacán is a farm committed with continuously improving its productive and post-harvest processes by conducting daily follow-up of harvest, depulping and drying, as well as that of the physical installations for these processes and dry parchment storage.
