Farm Info: Owned by Alejandra Gama's family, the farm dates back to 1800, where her great-grandmother was in charge of its maintenance. In 1950, her grandfather Antonio Martínez Ruíz inherited the farm and bought "Coatepec", another farm they currently work in. Antonio exported most of the coffee to Germany, however, years later, her father decided to start selling the coffee in Mexico.In 2011, they converted nine hectares of land in order to produce organic coffee. In 2014, their organic coffee won 5th place in the cup of excellence, which encouraged her father to turn the rest of the farm into organic production. In 2016, they became familiar with biodynamic practices due to the Biodynamic Meeting of Mexico. Following this, in 2017 they started using biodynamic practices in the farm.
