Juan José Lopera has been growing coffee for 3 years. In 1972, Bernardo Lopera, his father, bought the first piece of land belonging to the Finca Linda Laja.
The farm nestles between valleys and hills of Colombia's central mountain range in the northwest of the country and is mostly surrounded by virgin rain forest and other family farms. Its altitude goes form 1650 meters above the sea level to 2100.
The preservation of the rain forest and water sources is very important to the Lopera family. That's why we don't just let it grow, but we have made it our mission to protect it. We plant the coffee plantations in imitation of the jungle in mixed and shady forests, which are designed according to the principles of permaculture. The coffee trees ripen excellently under the protective roof of the shady trees allowing the fruitful flavors in each cherry to expand and mature slowly, as they receive enough moisture to develop optimally and enjoy the temperate climate of Antioquia’s hills.
The coffee that the Federacion of Coffee Farmers of Colombia harvests in this region is known for its quality and richness in flavor and, most is exported to foreign markets.
Also in the community of Santo Domingo, the region of Antioquia where the farm is located it is known among other farmers of the region as a model farm and the Lopera Family support many social projects the region as well as its workers with a conscious commitment towards improving the conditions of female workers.
