Finca la Secreta was acquired by Cafelumbus in 2019, to be a part of the portfolio. Juan Carlos Mejia is the manager of this farm, he lives there with his family and is looking after the 130.000 coffee trees planted there. The farm is 30ha wide, from which 25Ha are planted in coffee and the other 5 Ha are natural reserve. There is wood for protection of water, which is also supplier of water resources for the Vereda Ventorrillo, the zone where the farm is located, this is what makes this farm so unique, rich and bountiful nature, that makes it some secrecy and mystery, that is why cafelumbus called her: La Secreta. The natural anaerobic version of this coffee is winey but stands out through its fruity notes of cranberry and sparkling lime acidity.
