Farm

Finca Quejina has been in the family for many years, starting with Nicolas' great grandfather. It is nestled in the dense forest of Petatán. Harvesting coffee in this altitude and region presents many difficulties. During the season between the months of Feb-May, Nicolas brings his coffee to the bodega in Huehue. He turns in small lots as they are ready and is very thoughtful with separation of varieties and quality. He hopes to continue to expand his partnerships to purchase more land and improve cultivation of his Caturra, Pache Rojo, Bourbón plants.
