In 1990, Edilberto Vergara and Nubia Ayure arrived from Cundinamarca to Pitalito, Huila. At that time, Las Flores farm had 2 hectares, and 18,000 Caturra trees and Colombia variety. Edilberto and Nubia had 3 children; Carlos the older son, Johan and later Diego. Since 2006 the family has been adding other commercially better-known varieties such as Java, Pacamara, Tabi, Pink Bourbon, Caturra, Chiroso and Catimor. Carlos, together with his brother Diego, are in charge of most of the work on the farm, such as picking, selection, personnel management, and processes.
Johan is in charge of qualities, cupping and verifying processes.

Nowadays the farm has 14.5 hectares of coffee with 90,000 coffee trees and 1.5 in a nature reserve.
