Historical Background on the Finca La Dalia:
Carlos Guillen produces coffee with passion. So has his family for over 100 years. And this expertise has also come from his wife Sandra's family for generations. So it's not surprising that the highest quality specialty coffees are created in close collaboration with some of the best beneficios. The 'Cuyanauzul Farms' brand includes the La Dalia, Santa Teresa, El Mercurio and San Antonio fincas, each with its own unique characteristics and distinct varieties.
Since the beginning of 2019, the next generation, José Antonio Guillen, is dedicated exclusively to coffee.
Finca La Dalia is divided into 4 microlots.
El Chaguïte' and 'La Dalia' together have 8 manzanas. The bourbon harvested here is characterized by sweetness and balance. Another 4 manzanas used to grow grass for cattle and corn, hence the name 'El Jardin'. Red Bourbon has also thrived here for about 65 years. About 500m away is the microlot 'El Cerro' (10 manzanas), also part of Finca La Dalia. The soil is clayey and the slope prevents waterlogging. Pacamara has been grown here for 20 years and is now one of the best in the country.
