Farm Las Flores began in 1990, it was founded by Edilberto
Vergara and Nubia Ayure. Originally from the department of
Cundinamarca, children of coffee growers who inherited their
passion for the countryside and especially for coffee. The farm
has an extension of 16 hectares (160,000) m2, only 2 hectares
were cultivated in coffee and it is where my parents began
their work in cultivating the rest of the free land. For the year
1998 the farm is already fully cultivated. By this time a family is
already formed in a nucleus of 5 children, from eldest to
youngest: Xiomara, Leonardo, Carlos, Jhoan and Diego at this

time the traditional was to cultivate, harvest, wash, dry and sell,
this was the productive cycle and traditional that was used, in
2006 my mother took the initiative to compete in the cup of
excellence and was ranked 16th and it was at that moment
that she took the first steps to explore the great world of
specialty coffees, years Later, our mother passed away and left
us a very important legacy, a task that we must carry out and
that in life she was a person who faithfully believed that the
field had a future as long as we studied in depth everything
related to coffee. We children grow up and begin to ask
ourselves many questions. One of them was what would
happen after delivering our coffee? What would its destination
be? How could we improve? Will there be a broader market?
For this time Jhoan is given the
task of investigating a little more about each question and
entering a public institution called Sena, where he learns and
deepens theoretical and practical knowledge on coffee-
related issues. learn better agricultural practices that lead to
improving all the links in the coffee chain and emphasize
quality in the cup, at this time the traditional Caturra variety
that we had cultivated began to be renewed and little by little
we visited producers, getting to know different types of
varieties, tasting and analyzing sensory profiles that were
consistent with the height of our farm and available soils,
today Finca Las Flores has different varieties such as:

JAVA: 3,500 TREES
PINK BOURBON: 20,000 TREES
MARACATURRA: 4,000 TREES
CASTILLO AND COLOMBIA: 25,000 TREES
TABI: 2,500 TREES
CATURRA CHIROSO: 6,000 TREES
BOURBON SIDRA: 5,000 TREES
GENERATIONAL RELIEF

Already immersed in the subject of quality. Carlos, Jhoan and
Diego decide to take the next step. It consisted of starting to
develop replicable profiles and thus be able to highlight the
potential of each variety, each one having its fundamental
work on the farm. Carlos and Diego are in charge of processing
and giving proper management to fermentation times, types
of processes and care in drying, Jhoan is in charge of
analyzing the experiments, defining which process is
according to the variety and judging the quality. He is also in
charge of the commercial part to publicize the work that is
done together. According to the time that we have carried out
this project, we have been able to design different processes
such as natural, honey, and washed, highlighting each
characteristic of each variety.

ACHIEVEMENTS
Jhoan in 2019 participates in the MASTER OF COFFEE contest, in
the coffee grower - roaster modality, occupying the first place
of 162 participants with our flagship rosé bourbon variety with a

semi-washed process. He had the opportunity to travel to
South Korea and participate in an auction with coffees from
different parts of the world, achieving first place in the auction.
This achievement makes us believe that we are on the right
track, it motivates us to improve and give our best to always
bring excellent coffee to customers. In each process we carry
out we always think that we are in a contest and we put into
practice every knowledge.

with excellent agricultural practices. Make this company a
gateway to share knowledge with generational changes in
order to join forces and have a profitable and sustainable
