The Valle de Cauca region, also known as the Pacific Door of Colombia, is well known for its beauty and is one of the country’s most important regions due to its abundance of natural resources.
Located at an altitude of 5,400 feet above sea level in western Colombia’s Valle del Cauca region, the Herrera family’s Finca Potosi farm, has been producing coffee for the past 40 years. The farm is completely Organic and Rainforest Alliance Certified, and sponsors an elementary school for the children of the farm workers.
From a region that only 7 years ago was shadowed by the guerrilla wars, to an area that is now flourishing with high quality coffee farms, Finca Potosi is an excellent example of the potential that this region has to offer.
