FInca El Manzano was founded in 1872 and has belonged to Emilio’s family for generations. In 2005 Emilio expanded the operation by replanting new varieties to the farm and building Beneficio El Manzano. The new cultivars and production facility gave him the ability to experiment with different processes as well as the ability to explore different characteristics that the other varietals have to offer. It is this attention to detail and control of the process that has been at the forefront of what makes Finca El Manzano so special.
