La Bendicion Organic

Just as every process of change has its beginnings, Finca La Bendición has its own unique story. It
began in 1998, when the idea was born to develop the farm, which until then had been cultivated
in the shade of pine trees, as an organic coffee farm. Inspired by the native pine trees (which are
also a national symbol), together with the tranquility and fresh air of the 1450m hill, the desire
to transform the farm in a sustainable way was spurred on. The Finca is located on the slopes
of the Opalaca Eco-Reserve. A nature reserve for many endangered species that are protected
and respected by the finca. Finca La Bendición is therefore considered the guardian of all this
biodiversity. Fortunately, in view of the novel practices, the curiosity of the neighbors has also
been sparked, fascinated by it and at the same time concerned about the possible loss of
natural resources in their surroundings. Until now, they had assumed that such changes could
not be achieved, in fact, the practices used until now consisted in cutting down the native forest
for cultivation areas and sowing coffee. Once the actions of Finca La Bendición were underway,
the implementations were so successful and in harmony with nature, the idea was widely imitated.
As a result, the village of Loma de Hornos, where the finca is located, can now be a welloff
region for organic coffee producers. It was also this process of change that motivated the
Finca to continue working in this way, inspiring the next generations and practicing sustainable
farming methods. Therefore, it is said that Finca la Bendición is considered a great example and
also a pioneer of the region in terms of practices that preserve the environment and at the same
time satisfy the customers.
