Directly under the “Farallones del Citará” mountains and surrounded by the Cochuana forest, you find this wonderful piece of land called Finca Los Alpes. Despite its unique topography, the farm is only a short drive from Bolivar in the Department Antioquia of Colombia.

The finca is located on an altitude of around 1,650 to 1,950 masl. and magically protected by clouds. The massive mountains provide a unique microclimate: From the Western side humid air-streams come from the Pacific Ocean, while on the Eastern side hot air-currents climb up the canyon that surrounds the Cauca River.

Thanks to this special climate the coffee tree produces coffee year-round as it provides two very balanced rainy seasons per year. Therefore, the trees produce flowers and cherries twice a year. Several creeks, rivers and waterfalls come run from the mountains, providing abundant irrigation.

Finca Los Alpes was established in 1974. Today, 100 hectares are under coffee (100% Caturra) while the rest of the farm is naturally preserved. Doña Elvia and Don Juan Arboleda manage the finca together with their children Juan Alvaro and Olga. The farm has its own wet mill. For this particular Red Honey, some mucilage is left around the green coffee bean after pulping. The beans are then dried on raised beds under constant supervision and regular turning procedures.
