Finca Lemus Bella Vista is located in the municipality of Concepción de Ataco within the department of Ahuachapán, El Salvador. Finca Lemus Bella Vista is a 37 acre farm owned by Thelma de Gutierrez and managed by her husband, José Enrique Gutiérrez. This husband and wife team has used their experience as third generation coffee producers to improve the productivity and health of the farm, which includes the production and application of microbial compost teas on the farm. In the last two years, the couple has also diversified the farm with the production of beans, which ensure food security for the family and also act as nitrogen fixers that promote the coffee plants health and cherry production.
