Finca Las Brumas
Finca Las Brumas was established by the Paguaga family in 1997. It is located in the San Fernando mountains close to the Honduran border adjacent to its sister farm, Finca Los Congos, and sharing similar topography. The mountain is covered with a pine tree forest and native animals roam around freely without being disturbed. In 2013, a neighbor sold his plot of land to the Paguagas and setup Las Brumas with its own facilities including a new micro-mill. The new plot was heavily impacted by roya, so we implemented meticulous processes to salvage the trees and bring it back to life. The staff is train to hand pick and sort only the ripe fruit to ensure quality micro-lots. The coffee is processed immediately at the farm's own micro-mill and is then sun-dried on raised beds.
