The Beraca farm is situated near the villages of Llano Bonito and Leòn Cortez. 16 of the farm's 20 production hectares are devoted entirely to coffee growing. As this farm does not have its own washing station, the cherries are taken to the Meca washing station in San Pablo. The farm and station are both managed by the same producer, Deiver Mena Abarca. New facilities are set up very regularly at the plantation to produce new varieties in new plots and continuously offer new results in the cup.
Each year, Deiver has to adapt to climate change and to new constraints to ensure his farm's future for his family. Deiver is currently overseeing an ongoing renovation and planting project, and production has begun at several new plots this season.
The coffee is harvested in the dry season, then placed on raised African beds to dry.
Deiver has been the Beraca farm's producer since 1996. He has managed to increase its production from a 3-hectare area to 20 hectares in just a few years. Today, 16 hectares are devoted to coffee production. Deiver is constantly working to diversify and develop his heritage. It is thanks to his efforts that he has been able to produce microlots. Encouraged by the excellent altitude and weather conditions at his farm, he decided to choose and process his own microlots with the aim of finding better market alternatives for his coffee. It is how the Meca micro-beneficio came into being in 2015. Before creating his beneficio, Deiver participated in a training course to improve his expertise and technical skills.
