The Argüello Enriquez family are the owners of Finca Santa Cruz, a COE-winning farm, located near the Biofera del Triunfo bio-reserve.
Pepe Jose Argüello Enriquez, the youngest member of the family, took over the farm four years ago and decided to put his efforts into specialty coffee. He wanted to demonstrate Mexico's capability of providing great coffee to the world. He has successfully achieved the goal of putting his Mexican coffee amongst some of the best quality coffees on the planet.
In 2019, Finca Santa Cruz was awarded the highest score ever in the history of the Cup of Excellence Mexico, with a 93.04 for a natural Geisha.
