About the producer: Mario Gonzalez
Before 2006, the land that currently supports the Finca Los Suyates coffee farm was used for forestry. In that year, the production of timber in the area was significantly reduced by law, so the Gonzalez family made the momentous decision to move into producing coffee, after many years in the forestry industry. On land never before touched by a coffee plant, the Gonzalez family started from scratch and transformed the pine forest plantation into a fantastic coffee farm, helped by Mario’s son in law, Jairo, a qualified agronomist. It hasn’t been easy:
“the transition has been especially hard for me given the initial investment of starting a coffee farm from scratch and the long-term recovery of that investment. As a producer family it is not or it will not be possible to survive within the coffee sector without a market that recognises the work we do in the farms and the contribution we make to the surrounding communities.” – Mario Gonzalez
