Finca La Providencia is a 7 acre farm located in the La Argentina municipality of Colombia. The farm's altitude is about 1700 meters above sea level and grows multiple varieties of coffee trees including Caturra, Colombia, and Castillo for a total of 13,000 trees in production. After harvest the coffee is prepared using the traditional washed method and then sun dried.
Jose Alvaro Acevedo is 55 years old and has spent 45 of those years on the farm where he eventually started a family with his wife and 3 children, all of whom reside in their own houses on the farm to participate in the coffee production.
