Las Mercedes has been in the Guerra family since 1960.
The farm is managed by Juan Carlos who is a progressive coffee producer
setting up a cupping lab onsite and being a qualified Q grader.
The coffee is pulped and fermented under water for 12 hours after which it is rinsed then
transported to raised African style drying beds. These beds produce a sweeter, cleaner cup
than tradition mechanical dryers.
