El Patio Approximately 35 years ago, in this same property was located a mill called Beneficio Tibas River, that belonged to the grandfathers, uncles and parents of the now owner, Mrs. Maria Elena Camacho Morales. Twenty years of grief the Camacho family suffered when this mill was sold due to health problems in the family, but still the coffee farm remained in the hands of the Camacho family. The instability in the coffee market took Mrs. Camacho and her family to ask themselves on the future for the coffee business. Nevertheless, a year ago, they decided to retake with energy the farm and the crop, betting to the quality of the coffee bean and at the same time, they build their own mill, with the purpose of making the quality possible. And it was like this, how the team made by the family, the workers, and the coffee pickers begun working together with the only one purpose: quality. Mrs. Camacho often says: The thing I enjoy the most, is to watch my grandsons play in the coffee plantations; I like it that they remember their origin, and for them to learn to love the land.
