"Finca El Puente is located in the highest growing areas of one of the most famous Mayan areas in the world. It's also becoming famous for its very own special microclimate, perfect for growing coffee. Because of the high altitude, cold nights, volcanic soil and high humidity, coffees from this mountain will show sparkly citrus, black currant, and very complex qualities. Fernando Espana bought Finca El Puente in 1992 on day his first son was born, and named it after his grandmother."
