  • Finca El Vergel – which translates to “The Orchard” – is aptly named. El Vergel was established in 2013 as an experimental coffee farm, to serve as a variety garden and platform for experimentation and demonstration of organic farming, cultivation and processing techniques for other local farmers in the San Marcos region.

    Processed under the gaze of a stunning waterfall, this Natural Processed microlot is made up of 100% Caturra variety cherries, which are hand picked, sorted and then dried in specialised drying greenhouses on raised beds. All coffee at El Vergel is grown using Certified Organic farming methods, free from all chemicals and pesticides.

    El Vergel boasts a dedicated commercial composting facilities – a “biofabrica” – and is the host location of a World Coffee Research variety trial assessing the viability of different coffee varieties to similar high altitude, volcanic environments.
