Tucked into a wind-protected slope of the Llamapetec volcano, 119 acre Finca San Carlos is a battleground of agricultural innovation. Owner Carlos Raul Riera Mendez combats la Roya, a.k.a. leaf rust, with strategies gained in Colombia including the use of organic fungicide and planting F5 Hybrid Caturra along with other resistant cultivars at various elevations.

At the same time he pursues higher cup quality, adding the Geisha variety in 2015.
