Finca La Senda was established in 1940s and was pioneering coffee planting. The finca is a family run plantation with strong focus on new and contemporary fermentation techniques.
Owners Arnoldo and Maria Eugenia Pérez had been selling cherries from their 25 hectares of coffee to a nearby cooperative for years. In 2017, they decided to transition into higher end coffees by hiring Thomas Pingen as a consultant. This paradigm shift was also made possible with the help of their daughter, Yancy.
Up until 2017, the family was delivering coffee to the local cooperative. After meeting a high-end coffee consultant, Thomas Pingen, the family understood the potential of the finca's cherries. The focus shifted to producing high-end micro-lots. Bilding infrastructure and facilities (beneficio) began in April 2017 and were completed in November 2017.
