The Peñas Negras village is located in the Pluma region, which has once been famous for its coffee in the 80s-90s. Various misfortunes, involving price falls and rust leaf diseases, then brought its production to almost a halt. A couple of years ago, a group of smallholders took things in their hands and began working the land in order to regain its potential. Growing, harvesting and processing methods have got a lot better and we can say without doubt that the result lives once again to our expectations!
