The Concepción farm dates back to 1890, and was a cattle farm at that time, with a little bit of coffee. The name refers to the ‘Virgin of the Kings’ day, the Catholic day on the 8th of December – that refers to the conception of virgin Mary of her son Jesus Christ. The farm was bought by the ancestors of Vanessa Braun Valle more than hundred years ago. Nowadays, the farm has grown fivefold in its production of coffee, the farm is constantly renovated and a bit of the Bourbon varieties that the farm was originally consisting of, are still there. The annual farm cycle looks as follow; in April, the coffee trees are pruned, the soils are treated, and the trees are fertilised 3 times per year. The leaves receive 4-6 foliar applications per year. The family tries to not use any herbicides. Then, shade at the farm is controlled according to the climate of the year. When
the harvest season start, all ripe coffee cherries are picked manually. Although the farm has natural spring water, the family uses recirculated water from the moment of depulping so to avoid any contamination. The coffee is fermented and then washed very well with clean water. Parchment is sundried at patios.
