Born into a coffee family, Carlos Correa began accompanying his father on the farm as soon as he could walk. It was not long before he was helping pick cherries, turning beans in the drying beds, and pruning older trees. This lifetime of experience made it an easy choice when he was presented the opportunity to purchase Finca Las Palmeras in 2013.

Coming full circle, he now lives at Las Palmeras with his wife, Luz Teresa, and their 6 six children. The whole family works on the farm where they grow both Castillo and Chinchina varietals.

The 7,000 coffee trees are of various ages so even with the pruning cycles, they will have plants yielding cherries for every harvest. The children also have their own nursery where they are planning to plant 4,000 more trees so they can add the Caturra and Chiroso varietals to the farm as well.
