Lot 6: Flor del Café - Typica - Washed

Oswaldo Perez y Perez was born in Agua Dulce in 1917. At the age of 16 his father passed away, so him and his brothers had to step up to continue cultivating sugarcane and panela. In 1940 they founded “Flor del Café” and began growing coffee (typica) in an area of approximately 5.6 hectares.

In 1982 Oswaldo Perez y Perez passed away and his three sons, Mario Alfonso, Max Joel and Oswaldo Perez Ramirez took management of the farm. They continued growing coffee with new and better techniques that resulted in higher yields, as well as experimenting with new varieties (Catimor, Catuai and Pacamara).

In 1992 Oswaldo Perez Ramirez purchased the farm from his brothers and the neighboring farm to establish Finca Flor del Café, with an area of 105 hectares of coffee and 35 hectares of untouched tropical rainforest.

The Farm has its own wet and dry mills, housing for 150 permanent residents, and the “Casa Patronal” Mr. Oswaldo’s house.
