Additional Information

On December 12, 1715, Francisca Salazar, daughter of a very wealthy Spanish landowner named Francisco de Salazar y Barrios y Petronilla Valdes, donated three hectares of land from their hacienda to erect a town that was to be named honoring the Virgin of Guadalupe. A huge earthquake struck in 1827 and destroyed the town. A year later, the town was rebuilt and renamed "Guadalupe."
Four coffee growers came together with the idea of creating an association with the objective of improving their income and their quality of life through the joint commercialization of their coffee. They wanted to export high volumes, achieve higher prices and recognition for their coffee quality.
