Finca La María has been producing coffee since 1945. The farm has been passed from one generation to another one throughout the years. It belonged to Gustavo Taborda, Adolfo’s father during a period of 20 years from 1993 to 2013. Gustavo Taborda then sold the farm to his son Adolfo Taborda in 2013. Adolfo, who had a farm in another mountain of the region, 4 hours away by car and has been in the business his whole life decides to sell his current farm at that moment to buy his father's and moves with his wife Zoé and his daughter Lorena to the place were he had grown up to manage is new coffee farm.
Today the Taborda Cortez family has a plantation of about 12,000 trees and the extended experience and many advantages on the good conditions of the soil have helped Adolfo develop an exceptional coffee that deserves to be shown and recognized as such. As well as his farm, Adolfo and his family are responsible and disciplined people full of love and pride for what they do, is that why their dedication and hard work deserves to be compensated in a fair way
