Located on the North slopes of the Picacho Volcano in the Bálsamo-Quezaltepec coffee region, the estate has been in the family since 1880. The Estate is now run by the Alvares Gallardo family who took over in 1992 bringing a new passion and dedication to the farm.

Starting at 1070 masl the farm is a long thin strip which climbs up to 1900 masl producing 3000 bags annually. The Estate has reintroduced an old practice of agobia cutting and growing where the trees are bent over and tied to the ground to keep producing whilst new shoots grow vertically.
