Juan Diego de la Cerda is a third-generation coffee producer and began running the farm in 1999. Coffee has been grown at Finca El Socorro since 1980 and there are now 125 hectares of planted coffee trees. The farm employs around 100 local workers during the harvest and provides employment for around 40 people outside of harvest period, working on processing and farm maintenance. Much of the coffee is shade-grown under avocado, palo blanco and chichicaste trees and irrigation is provided by rainfall and a local river, with a re-circulated water system in place to reduce wastage of water.
