El Pilar is located just outside of Antigua
and is owned and managed by Juan Carlos Chen.
The farm area is over 1900 hectares of which
90 hectares are dedicated to coffee. The
varieties grown here are Bourbon, Caturra and
Catuaí. The agricultural management is strict,
especially when it comes to plant nutrition
and Juan is looking to produce coffee
sustainably. This focus is evident by the fact
that the land not being used for coffee
cultivation is managed as a natural reserve.
Most of the farm’s activities are focused on
conservation.
