Farm info:


Finca Santuario began 22 years ago when Camilo Merizalde had the desire to create a unique farm capable of producing the best specialty coffees in Colombia. Rather than focus on quantity, Camilo decided to focus on quality. He quickly realized that biological diversity was paramount in creating an environment capable of producing excellent cup quality with long-term sustainability. The majority of varieties grown at Santuario are extremely high quality but have lower yields. The harmonious interplay between the surrounding environment, volcanic soil, and variety allow for the creation of some of the most spectacular coffees available in Colombia.
