The farm Finca El Prado is found at 1800 meters in the hamlet of Ricabrisa in the northern part of Tarqui. There are no roads leading to it, and to get there you have to ride a mule or walk for an hour and a half through lush rainforest-like vegetation. The farm is now run by Ferney Cruz.
On the 4 hectars he has 9000 caturra trees. The plot of land stretches up to over 1900 masl on the very steep mointain slopes. After the coffee has been picked by hand it is brough down to the farm where his micro mill is. It is pulped and let to ferment with a little bit of water before it gets washed several times and moved to dry on covered raised beds.
