Born and raised amidst coffee plantations and a parchment warehouse at home, Max Pérez always had the idea of starting a coffee business himself.
In 2010, the opportunity came up. The time to "make the coffee dreams come true" arrived with a lot of family effort and a clear idea in mind: develop a specialty coffee farm that would blend tradition and innovation to supply its customers with exceptional coffees while having a positive impact on the society. And so, the adventure started!
After acquiring the land in 2010, the project started to take shape. The team was complete and the family experience added to an innovative vision facilitated the decision on what varieties and cultivars to plant, the type of shade trees to be used and other technical needs that had to be executed.
Max and his family carefully supervised every detail, from selecting the seeds to the planting to guarantee the project's success. A coffee plantation is a long-term investment, so certainty and care in every step are crucial.
The farm is divided into thirteen plots in total production, featuring traditional varieties as pache, typica, caturra, bourbon and the trendy maragogype, pacamara and geisha.
Quality doesn't come by chance, so all our coffees are carefully handpicked and processed following the best practices for the washed, natural, honey & anaerobic methods.
La Hermosa won different national and international awards, including the Cup of Excellence in the past years. Of course, the job doesn't stop here and the team keeps moving towards innovation and improvement.
