Compañia cafeteria la Meseta is a family business with much experience in the marketing of coffee in Colombia. The reliability and performance has allowed the continued growth of the business since its inception in 1983. The history of La Meseta began as small-scale coffee growers with a production of 10.000kg of coffee parchment in the town of Villamaria, State of Caldas, Colombia, and today the company has established itself as a strong agro-industrial business with an average production of Excelso coffee of 25,000 bags per month on average.
The coffee tradition of our country and especially the central coffee-growing region has lead this family group to create since more than 25 years a beautiful plantation farm of Colombian soft coffee, blended with the richest flavours and aromas that Colombian mountains can provide, we also have the tenacity and strength of the region’s hardworking people who contribute to reach our objective.
The farm runs a mountain sidewalk along its length and involves men and women throughout the production cycle from preparation of the seedlings to the strict collection work where amongst men and women are responsible for collecting the ripe fruits that characterize and guarantee the physical and sensory quality of our coffee.
The farm is classified by its location in the mountains, as “High altitude” attribute that contributes to high quality and cup profile.
We emphasize the preservation of natural resources, for product safety and food security of our client, the social responsibility to all those involved in the different production processes of the farm and to maintain and manage a reliable and traceable information, thus ensuring responsible production.
There is an interdisciplinary group that seeks the permanent application on the farm and its surroundings of Good Agricultural Practices GAP, is how we have involved a group of neighboring farms in the processes of GAP and coffee certification in order to show our customers a community that seeks responsible coffee production.
The farm always invites friends and strangers to join the process of continuous training on issues related to GAP, and also make training alliances with local and national authorities, that bring as result the continuous improvement of the Farm La Meseta-Guamera.
