Santuario Sul Farm, was created 5 years ago with the same philosophy and techniques from Finca Santuario in Cauca Colombia. Luiz Paulo Pereira Filho and Camilo Merizalde decided to plant Yellow Bourbon as the main varietal for the farm. During the following years, more varietals were planted at the farm to complete a coffee garden with 20 different species from all over the world. Every year Santuario Sul offers new and sophisticated processes to enhance the flavors of the exotic coffees planted at the farm. Santuario Project is in charge of the coffee processing at the Farm. Every year Mr. Ivan Solis and Mr. Edwin Noreña quality managers, travel to Brazil to personally supervise harvest labors and coffee processes at Santuario Sul farm.
