La Montaña is a relatively large single farm, producing around exportable 300 bags per year, primarily washed coffees. It is a family business, overseen by two sisters, Daniela and Tatiana Gutierrez, having taken over day-to-day operations from their father, Jorge. Daniela handles day-to-day operations and is passionate about specialty coffee; she has learned about barista skills as well as roasting, and enjoys drinking the coffees that La Montaña produces. The sisters' father is still involved at the farm, but the sisters are working toward the commercialization of the coffee.

Jorge acquired his first farm 40 years ago, and he is still fascinated by coffee production: He has dedicated his whole life to growing coffee, and his daughters are interested in following in his footsteps. "Coffee for us is our way of life," says Daniela. "It is a job that we enjoy and that we are passionate about. Coffee is what we breathe and what we love to do."

Since his first estate 40 years, ago, Jorge and his family have been able to slowly increase the size of their farmland, and they now own five separate plots, all within about a 20-minute drive from the mill: San Luis, La Montaña, San Pedro, La Cumbre, and San Marcos.

In addition to coffee, the family grows other fruit on 25 hectares of land, such as oranges, lemons, and bananas.
