Our coffee farm is nestled in the Sierra de la Botija forest, named in 2017 a UNESCO world heritage site due to its biodiversity. We grow four varieties of coffee, mainly caturra and catimor, which is grown in rich volcanic soil at high elevation with just the right amount of shade and sun to inform its flavor.
Our farm is unique in that our agronomist team is led by and made up of women farmers. Their natural maternal instincts provide vigilant attention to the trees' well-being, the gentility needed at harvest time to pick ripened berries without damaging the stem for next year's growth, and the patience to comb the entire farm up to four times during the harvest to pick the berry at the perfect point of maturity to provide the most flavor.
We are proud to provide employment to more than twenty women raising their families on this beautiful mountain. For them, prior to working on our farm, coffee had always been their heritage, but it had never been a viable livelihood. Because we are committed to the people behind the coffee bean, we pay our agronomists above established fair wages, effectively uniting heritage and livelihood again on the mountain.
