Finca Sauce, near Buesaco, Nariño, has been passed from generation to generation. The first generation who started cultivating coffee was Arturo’s grandfather, Don Efrain Chavez, and from there onward it was passed to the second and third generation managing the farm today, where Don Arturo Guzman has been cultivating coffee for 18 years. The farm is in excellent condition, with proper wet mill infrastructure for processing coffee, including a freshwater stream that provides clean water for washing coffee.
The farm has further optimal coffee growing conditions: high elevation, temperate climate, and close by to the dry mill and other resources in the town of Buesaco. Finca Sauce plants orange, lime, lemon, and bananas as shade between the coffee trees, but coffee is the only cash crop cultivated for export.
