85 years ago Vicente Gomez and his wife Maria Reyes purchased a plot of land in the village of Sanguayaba, Palencia. This 42-hectare property produces both washed and natural processed coffees.
Many years later Vicente and Maria’s son Jose Gomez inherited the farm and began planting potatoes and corn. Dairy cattle were also raised on the land, but it was short-lived as many of the animals fell to their death on the steep hills.
In 1997 Jose Gomez rebranded the land and began growing coffee. He called it Finca La Bendicion. Today he works with his son Jose and they experimenti with new varieties, in addition to building their own wet mill with African Beds for drying.
