Finca El Socorro’s history is a long and complicated one. It dates from 19th century, when Antonio López Colom started working in the farm. It was not until 1960, when Mario De La Cerda, and his wife Maria Colom (next in the successor’s Line of Antonio Lopez Colom) bought a big farm composed in three properties: El Socorro, San Guayabá, and Rio Arriba. Bringing back these lands to the original family owners.

His son, Juan De La Cerda Colom began managing the farm. He had always wanted to plant coffee in this location. His father allowed him to take over and plant coffee under one condition: “never become indebted”.  In 1999 Diego de la Cerda, now the third generation, began to manage the farm and make some changes in the production and coffee processing, always with quality as the priority. Right now the farm produces many coffee varietals and exports coffee to more than 12 clients over the world.
