The original records of Hacienda Cocollar tell us how Doña Concepción Albornett de Ávila received as a gift from her husband (Don Jesús Ávila) a plantation with more than 10,000 coffee plants. Two generations later, more than 100,000 coffee trees are producing Venezuelan creole beans. Hacienda Cocollar has been part of the Ávila family for more than 50 years and has seen three generations take care of their agricultural paradise.
Caripe is one of the oldest Venezuelan coffee producing regions. Hacienda Cocollar is located in the green mountains of the idyllic valley of El Guácharo National Park. The way to get there offers endless surprising landscapes. This geographical paradise, comprising 250 hectares of land, is covered by bananas and other fruit trees that provide abundant shade for coffee plants.
The altitude of Caripe is ideal for coffee production considering its latitude (10º 10 '9 "), similar to Costa Rica and Panama, where adequate temperatures are reached due to the southern location from the equator. Such conditions have also given the region the production of a world-renowned cocoa.
