Santuario farm history began 22 years ago when Camilo Merizalde had the desire of creating a unique farm capable of producing the best specialty coffees from Colombia. For the first ten years Santuario Farm was able to produce amazing coffees for the Specialty Coffee Market. By 2012 Santuario opened the first two farms out of Colombia (Tres Milagros Costa Rica), and (Santuario Sul Brazil). On April 2017 Santuario Colombia teamed up with Teddy Esteve (Ecom Group) to create the Santuario Process center in Ixhuatlan del Cafe Veracruz, Mexico.
