Description: The 10 hectare farm is located in the mountain range El Pacayal. It was purchased by the Carrillo family 3 years ago, who have managed to bring the farm back to life and improve cup quality through attention to growing and processing.
The name El Rodeo is derived from the fact that this farm surrounds the urban area of the municipality of chinacla. The municipality of Chinacla has been a reference of quality in recent years. Producers of Chinacla have won national and international competitions, including the Cup of Excellence on two occasions. Mrs. Natalia Pineda, the mother of Karen and Edgar Carrillo, was awarded 4th place in Cup of Excellence in 2017 for her coffee from Finca Las Flores in the same town of Chinacla.
In addition to producing amazing coffee, the farm is being used to share experiences and teach good practices of sustainable and organic production to other producers of the Pacayal group. El Rodeo also provides support for the care center in Chinacla for individuals with disabilities.
