Finca Colombia was founded in 1916 by María Magaña Menéndez de Llanos and her husband PhD in Philosophy of Colombian origin Francisco Antonio Llanos. Dr. Llanos migrated to El Salvador a few years before, and his passion and nostalgia for coffee growing in his native country was the engine to found the farm.
Finca Colombia always had a difficult access, however, Francisco and Maria continued working and cultivating their farm until the end of their days and inherited their only daughter Otilia Llanos de Barrios, who continued her legacy and taught the love for coffee to her daughter Evelyn Barrios, In 2016, Evelyn Barrios together with her children made the decision to sell the farm, a decision they had to make due to the security crisis in the territory
In the family we grew up listening to great stories about Finca Colombia, from how our uncles were transported to work the farm, to the quality of their coffee. It was always considered the Jewel of the Crown of the family farms. It was the previous and the desire that Finca Colombia continued to belong to the family which led us to acquire it on the 100th anniversary
Today we are working with the fourth and fifth generation of coffee producers to care for, preserve and enrich our passion for coffee. It is worth mentioning that the problems of insecurity in the area persist, however we are of the opinion that each one must improve his square meter and do his best to solve the problems of his area, that is why we have come to work hand in hand with our workers and the community that surrounds us, providing private doctors and medicine for free, paying more than stipulated by law and betting on the education of children in the area, thus achieving today to work without any attack on our safety or to that of our employees
Finca Colombia has a promising future, we bet strongly for the renewal of coffee plantations, for the inclusion of varieties that provide us with quality in the final drink, for the research in the processes that can give us consistency in our quality and for the traceability of our coffee. It is the second year participating in the cup of excellence program.
