The family farm La Estancia was established in Mexico in the 1950s. Marco Antonio Cadena is the fourth generation to run the farm. From the beginning, he has been committed to improving social conditions - he takes sustainable cultivation and environmental protection very seriously.
During harvest time on the farm "La Estancia", from January to March, Marco Antonio welcomes 50 workers who are dedicated to producing the best coffee in the region. During these months, the workers live on the farm and are given food and a place to sleep. Marco Antonio still plans to develop social protection programmes for his workers, carry out facility improvements, continue training to perfect his processes and integrate organic coffee production.
As one of the ecological measures, the cherry peels on the farm are reused as compost for the coffee plants or given to the surrounding farms as cattle feed. The production of Specialty Coffee at Finca La Estancia is constantly monitored in all processes. Marco pays special attention to the cutting and harvesting of the ripe cherries. For him, the focus is clearly on quality and not quantity.
