Here’s the secret to getting a good cup of coffee. We collect the beans every day for more than 3 months, plant to plant manually.
Our Premium Coffee grows at an altitude of 1,530m to 1,628m above sea level.
Carefully, we make a selection of the best coffee beans, cherry and grape. Once selected, we proceed to depulp the coffee. Each coffee bean contains two seeds.
The wastes are used to generate gas or fertilizer for other species.
It is one of the most important processes to obtain optimum quality. The perfect balance between fermentation time and temperature gives us an excellent Premium Gourmet Coffee for those who enjoy a great cup every morning.
The beans are washed by hand. At this time, we select defective beans again.

The objective of a proper grind is to get the most flavor in a single cup of coffee,
depending always of the coffee maker.
» Always grind your beans as close to the brew time as possible for maximum freshness.
» We recommend taking a moment to examine the beans and smell their aroma.
» The size of the grind is hugely important to the taste of your coffee.
» For a standard cup of coffee the ratio should be: 10gr coffee / 0,20 lt water.
» Your beans’ greatest enemies are air, moisture, heat, and light. Keep your beans in a dark and cool location.
