INNOVATION AND GROWTH...

Thirty two years ago, after attempting to make a living in the city, Fernando was drawn to the farm life.  He purchased Finca Bolivia and after seeking help from local agronomists, decided to plant it with a mix of Caturra and Colombia varieties.  While he was waiting for the coffee to become productive he improved all of the facilities by bringing in electricity and creating access roads.  What started as just one hectare of coffee is now 3.8 hectares and it is clear in the cup that Fernando has been working hard to develop consistent quality for many years.  This coffee has an unmistakable milk chocolate note with delicate fruit that makes it a true daily drinker.
